About a year ago, I noticed a receding hairline. Hair would fall out during a shower, or even I would see some strands on my pillow. My dad and his dad started balding at my age, so it is most likely genetics. It is really embarrassing. I told my parents about it and they won’t take me anywhere. They feel like I am exaggerating. Plus, i do not think we have insurance, so that is also a reason why I haven’t seen any doctors. That is also the reason why I haven’t been to any doctor/dentist in well over 5 years. People are starting to notice a receding hairline and it is really stressing me out, thus more hair falls out, thus more stressing. Please help
The best help I can offer you is to go see your doctor. If not for the hair, but for a general check up. You are under 18 years old and a minor. You should have insurance through your parents or the state that provide free health insurance. The most common cause of hair loss in men after puberty is genetic male pattern balding (MPB) or androgenic alopecia. At your age there is a good option in medications. You can also see a hair transplant doctor but you will need a parent to accompany you to be able to address the situation if the examination confirms your suspicion.
