i have been having a problem with my hair falling off at the sides for a very long time. im 27 years old so that should not be a problem of age and i have not given birth. the problem is that it grows but keep falling off. i’m short of tricks to do and the worst thing is that its really hard to style my hair. i never had tight pig tails and i have always had this thought that its hereditary as my mom has also that problem and i experienced it early im teenage. and i have tried some creams but they have not worked and been to the doctor. help
The photo appears to show traction alopecia, but it could be an autoimmune process as well. There is a condition called triangular alopecia, where the hair at the temples may be lost on both sides, but I am unaware of reports of it being this extensive. Perhaps a biopsy would help make the diagnosis. You need to see a good dermatologist who should be able to let you know what you have. Thank you for permission to post your photo.
