i am a 21 year old male and i have been experiencing diffuse hairloss for the past 2 years give or take…my family tells me im crazy but i believe my hair has thinned alot….if i dont put it in exactly the right place u can see right threw into my scalp….my problem is that it doesnt appear to be male pattern baldness because it didnt start at the back of my head or my temples it started in the middle of my part (i used to have long hair) it honestly resembles female pattern baldness more than male pattern baldness-although recently my hairline did start to move back on the right side(only about a 1/4 inch if that)… my question is can an abcess tooth gone untreated be causing this???…after racking my brain for a reason this seems to be the only logical thing since the hairloss started happening just after i hurt my tooth…but my hairloss hurts me more than my tooth :) also my older brother who is 23 still has his hair and my little brother 19 still has his hair though my dad waas completely bald by 26 and acctually i naturally have thicker hair than both of them….please let me know i want to get this taken care of…. thanks alot!
A tooth abscess should not produce hair loss, other than an added stress in your life (stress can cause hair loss in some people or accelerate genetic hair loss if the stress is prolonged). You need a diagnosis, which I really couldn’t begin to help you with unless I see you.
If you are balding, then you do not have to start at the back and move forward with your balding process. Every man is different. What you are calling female balding is what I call diffuse unpatterned alopecia (DUPA) and that diagnosis can be made by mapping out the scalp for miniaturization. Get a diagnosis by seeing a good doctor and then develop a Master Plan for what you might go. You do want to for sure know what’s going on with your hair loss, right?
