i started loosing my hair about 10 months ago then about a month later i found a patch on the back of my head! it has slowly got bigger! now it is gettin worse everyday it is about the size of 3 ten pence peices! this morning i lost that much hair while washing my hair the the plouge got blocked im so scared! i dont know what to do! the doctors have given me 3 types of anti-depresants the first two lots made me feel very sick and gave me bad head aches so i stoped taken them, now i am on chlorpromazine and i haven noticeded any difference with them yet!

Great advice bm
It would be cool if there was an help group in her area as imo it helps to talk to people in similar situations. I agree with bm though the pic is a bit blurry do you have anymore closer up ones

It looks to me like you have what is called alopecia areata monocularis. It is thought to be an autoimmune disorder where the body for whatever reason attacks an area of follicles. There is no known reason and typically in many cases it will resolve itself an about a years time. Don't panic. Wait it out and see if it grows back on its own as is usually the case. Hope this helps,

Hair loss is a big problem, the one reason of hair loss is mental tension. You need some medication for it. Hope u will get the right medicine for it.
