Hallo all members
I have a problem that is allmost destroying my life: I have a strong hair loss since I was fifteen (I am now29). It has started with no reason at all and continues ever since. I lose hair along the year but it is torlable until summer comes! from excatly mid May till mid Spetember I have the follwoing syomptoms:
My hair goes down creasy,,,I only put my hand and 30 hairs come out!
I have a very strong dandurff
I have an incridable burning -iching sensation in my head.......I am sure this sensation does not come from Dandruff becuase it is from inside not outside.
I feel the same sensation, milder though, throughout my body, especially the skin of shoulders and legs.
Eye allergie: and it is not only redness or tears,,,,,it is so painful that I cannot get out of the home sometimes,,,I have light sensitivity and somtimes ,when I try to concentrate, double vision too.
I feel exhusted and sleepy and my blood pressure is very low.
I have an iching mouth feeling,,,,,,though this happenes rarely
I have never had in my life regular period, it comes either too early (like 10 days early) or too late (like 30 days late).

Once September comes things turn out suddenly better,,,,my hair becomes better (though never completly normal) and my eye and skin allergie disappear.....

Now could this be be Hypothoriodism .......has anyone heared about Hypothoriodism which intinsifies itself in summer? could my femimine -masculine Hormons be responding to heat at summer? or could it be simply Androgenetic allopecia?
my e amil is

  • Your T3 is low so I wonder what your TSH and T4 are. "Normal" doesn't mean much as you can be normal or even low on TSH and have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis the most common type of Hypothyroidism. And you have low iron which is another symptom of thyroid disease.http://thyroidtoday.com/ExpertOpinions/LabMedicine.asp?page=2"A repeat TSH measurement after 3 weeks and/or with a reflex antithyroid peroxidase (TPOAb) measurement may be appropriate when an ambulatory patient has a serum TSH concentration in the "upper-normal range" (>3.0 µIU/L)."Euthyroid patients typically have TSH's This is based on test range of 0.4 - 4.12 µIU/L.

  • Hallo membersI am the same person above,,,,,,,I am now on Biotin (13 mg daily) and iron for 7 weeks ,,,,,but I can not trace any improvment in hair, skin or eyes.......My doctor says I have to use Biotin for a t least 3 months to see an effect......I doubt though there will be any improvment on this rate. Does anyone have a good/bad experience with Biotin? How much usually does it take to work? does it work at all?

  • Hi mayfarouk21…I can understand your concerns regarding hair loss. I have seen my brother himself undergoing this phase. He was only 24, when he was almost at the verge of semi-baldness, due to continuous hair loss. But, it’s strange, that you are losing hair since the age of 15 and you didn’t do anything at that time. Still, better late than never. My brother went for hair loss herbal treatment. The first satisfaction was that it was a herbal product. And then, all what happened was nothing less than like a dream. Loss of hair stopped with 2-3 weeks of using it. And surprisingly new hair started growing within a month.

  • sorry this is so late, hopefully it can still be helpful. i wont go into huge detail but i am learnign alot about sweetener poisoning. i have an allergy to pesticides and i dont know if that is related but ive been drinking coffee with splenda for years and i think im beginning to link that to my hair loss, scalp itch, among many other symptoms. i do know that splenda is related to pesticides, but i dont think you have to be alergic to pesticides to be alergic to splenda. the only reason i think pesticides may be a problem for you is because your symptoms ar seasonal. try cutting out any sugar free sweeteners you ingest. check everything you eat and drink, its hidden in alot of drinks. i hope this helps.by the way, as a child i had alot of problems with my health due to pesticide allergy. i lived in tulare california where the airplanes would spray the fields close to my house. there was alot of fruits being grown down there. god bless

  • ITCHY SCALP CARE:Here's some of my tips:* use 1/4 cup of vinegar mixed with 1/4 cup of water as a last rinse...* Every alternate day, apply warm coconut oil, olive oil, almond oi, castor oil or mustard oil to your scalp. Massage the root and hair thoroughly and leave it for the night. Wash it in the morning with shampoo, condition it and apply a hair serum.* Avoid washing your hair with hot or warm water. Use tepid water to rinse it* Mix two teaspoons of vinegar with six teaspoons of water. Massage this you're your scalp before going to bed. Go to sleep with a towel around your head. Wash your head the next morning. Use the vinegar and water mixture as a rinse for your hair. * When you shampoo your hair, use beer or boiled tea water as the last rinse.Another important supplement for healthy hair is Biotin. It is needed for healthy hair and skin, and may even prevent hair loss. Some food sources of biotin include:brewer's yeast brown rice bulgur green peas lentils oats soybeans sunflower seeds and walnuts. Biotin not only helps grow new hair, but it also plays a role in the overall health of skin and nails. A biotin supplement can provide your body with the necessary amount of biotin it needs to promote hair growth and prevent hair loss. The major benefit of biotin is its ability to strengthen hair and nails. DANDRUFF BE GONE!• A mixture of olive oil and almond oil is a good combination for getting rid of the scalp problem.• You can even mix ginger with olive oil and apply to the scalp. Leave it for 15 to 20 minutes and wash off with plain water.• A combination of crushed rosemary and olive oil can also show wondrous results in the treatment of dandruff.• Garlic and Oregano are excellent remedies for getting rid of dandruff. Both oregano and garlic have strong anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties that helps in killing micro-organisms causing dandruff. Crush them, make it a paste then massage on to scalp. Hope all of these stuff helps...:D* Rub your scalp with diluted curd everyday. You can also use lemon juice for this.
