I have had hair loss in the nape area of my head for the last 3 or 4 years, my hair falls out completely down to the scalp it seems to happen around the same time each year but the symptoms are itching, burning and tingling. the hair grows back but falls out all over again. is this a sign of beginning Alopecia? Im 27 years old
I have seen people lose neck hair, but I have never heard of it cycling every year. I am sorry, but there’s really not much I can offer you, particularly without examining your scalp and seeing what you’re seeing. The word “alopecia” means “hair loss” so the question is not not precise for a cause of the hair loss. Various adjectives are used, such as traction alopecia (caused by pulling on the hair) or androgenic alopecia (caused by genes).
