    Im freaking out, I just noticed I got a random bald spot on the left side of my scalp and I have no clue how it happened. It also happened that about 3 months ago I had a random bald spot on my chin...back then I thought it was just some random shit but now I noticed this one on my scalp and Im wondering if they're related and how can this be treated if it can be treated at all.

    thanks in advance guys.

    http://dermatology.about.com/cs/hairloss/a/alopeciaareata.htm

    above says if it's alopecia hair usually regrows within a year without any treatment.

    Yes it's called alopecia areata
    and it's usually small round patches of hair loss

    It can be set off by a number of things
    The most common of which is stress
    no real treatment for it
    and it's usually self-limiting

    At the risk of sounding like I'm throwing out effusive flattery, you have a face and body most men would die to have (and many would die to get with), plus you're very intelligent.

    One little temporary bald patch on your scalp will do absolutely nothing to diminish that. So relax. icon_wink.gif

    OOPS! ... icon_eek.gif

    "...When hair loss occurs in only one section, it is known as alopecia areata. This is the most common form of the disease and is consistent with a sudden loss of hair, causing patches to appear on either the scalp or other bodily areas. If left untreated, or if the disease does not respond to treatment, complete baldness can result in the affected area, known as alopecia totalis. Alopecia universalis is when the entire body suffers from complete hair loss, and is similar to the affects associated with chemotherapy.[2] ... " ... icon_eek.gif

    Oh, dude, sorry. Hope you dont get alopecia totalis. ... icon_eek.gif

    now i am not a doctor, nor did i sleep at a holiday express last night, but charlitos, the worst case scenario would seem to be going from the vanity of having hair to the vanity of having no hair, otherwise known as 'bald' (although i prefer to use the more accurate phrase, "optimally aerodynamic when completely naked", at least when i use it to describe myself).

    I would bet on alopecia also, as someone who has it, it sounds pretty familiar. Dont be afraid to pursue other causes such as stress, vitamin deficency, ring worm.... all could cause similar issues.

    I started showing signs of alopecia at 13 and it lasted thru high school and some college, I finally started shaving my head in the mid 90's.........and not many guys were doing that back then! But I loved it! Always did march to the beat of my own drum :-)

    You'll be fine and in most cases it will remedy itself. I hope you find the answers you're looking for. If it is alopecia hit me up if you'd like to talk more!

    The cute little girl who lives next door to my parents developed alopecia areata on her scalp when she was 5 years old. It developed into alopecia totalis within a year. For a while she wore a wig but now she just goes bare headed. She is nine years old now and only has a few wisps of hair on her head.

    In some cases, not most.

    Once bald, it doesn't usually grow back.

    Bald patches ... I don't find it attractive at all, but I'm sure there are plenty of guys who don't mind it. I think a clean shaved head looks great on the right guy.

    I don't think you should worry. I had a similar experience and it just grew back within a couple of weeks...

    Well it won't kill me so it shouldn't be a big deal except for the psychological implications.

    The size of the spot is like the size of a dime, looks like if I grow enough hair I can ever cover it. I'm afraid it could progress somehow so should I go see a doctor?

    Is it normal to get this random bald spots now that I'm 24?

    PS: Caslooooon fuck off my bf loves baldies!

    lol, go see a doc. icon_wink.gif The fact that it already appeared somewhere else then went away tells me this isn't permanent.

    Oh Alopicia doesnt give you a nice clean bald head. It comes out in patches and makes you look like you got the mange. And you have to wear a wig made of polyester hair, cuz it makes natural hair in a wig fall out, too.
