You need to see a dermatologist soon. Several conditions could be causing your hair loss. Having extensive dandruff and scalp itching is a sign of inflammation of the scalp and seborrheic dermatitis. Seborrheic dermatitis is an inflammatory disease that can involve scalp skin and other areas. Although seborrheic dermatitis does not generally cause hair loss, if you are genetically predisposed to baldness, inflammation can accelerate your patterned hair loss. Some other inflammatory conditions, such as infectious disorders of the scalp, can do the same to the follicles. Find a good physician who can diagnose and treat the condition so that you can limit your hair loss or even regrow your hair. For an accurate diagnosis of genetic hair loss, if that is what you have, you need to get your scalp mapped out for miniaturization.
