This is my second time deployed to iraq, and my last time over here I started experiencing this problem with my head. It was only one spot, and then eventually after all the puss was released it went bald. Now my second time over here and it has come back with vengance. There are now three spots on my head, and the one just seems to be spreading more and more each week. Please help me because the doctors over here dont know anything.
Pus? It sound like an infection. I would see a doctor and take care of the infection. Tell the doctors that you may have folliculitis and need a culture of one of the “boils” to determine the diagnosis. Sometimes hair loss can be permanent from scarring after an infection, but if you take care of the infection early enough permanent hair loss can be prevented. If the hair loss is permanent, you can always have a small hair transplant procedure to cover up the scar. It generally takes over a year to assess if the hair will grow back.
