I am a 28 year old male and I have quite thin hair. Around three years ago someone mentioned it was thinning around the crown. At the time I had quite bad eczema on my head. I assumed this was the source of the problem and have since managed to get it under control with the help of a dermatologists.
However, the hair around my crown does not seem to have grown back. I keep quite a close eye on my crown and I don’t think it has got much worse over the last few years, although it is hard to tell.
Could the hair loss around my crown be due to the eczema? Should I assume it won’t grow back?
I suppose anything is possible, but your guess is as good as mine in this case. It is relatively unusual to just have crown hair loss from eczema. In general, crown hair loss for men is genetic in nature. It’s possible that you have genetic balding in addition to the eczema.
