I am grateful for the information on this blog but after going through the forum, there doesn’t seem to be a case that is similar to mine. I am a 23 year old Asian male located in the Los Angeles area and on the top of my head is a circular spot which is nearly bald. I am 99% certain this circular spot is a callous that was developed by the many headstands and spinning I used to practice when I was 18-22.
The rest of my head is fine, I notice losing the usual hair but my crown appears to be thinning because the hair from the crown area is combed up to disguise the circular spot. Is a hair transplant the only way to deal with this callous on the top of my head and where can I go to get consultation on that procedure?
Please help, Dr. Rassman.
It sounds like you developed traction alopecia in the area that is callused. Hair transplants should solve the problem, but you must make sure that you stop standing on your head and spinning. If you want to continue to stand on your head, use a circular collar to keep the pressure evenly spread.
As you indicated you are local, you should visit me and let’s look at your problem (I’m in Los Angeles).
