I have seen a few different doctors about a problem I am having with my scalp. A few months ago I felt my scalp and it seemed to have an indent. When I looked at it it was very red and I lost the hair in the spot. It is located at the back of my center part about the size of a dime. One doctor did a biopsy and told me it was scar that will continue to grow unless I get cortisone shots and use clobetasol. I got the shots and used the cream. Some hair grew back and Imissed the month of june for my shots. In July i noticed that a little further foward on my scalp I had a new indent (as if the fat under my skin is being eaten away) and it is very red and I lost my hair ther and it is about the size of a quater. Now I am freaking out. I went to my GP and he said it was lochum Planiis(i think that is how it is spelled) So he has been giving me cortisone shots every week. Then I saw his partner who looked at my scalp under a wood lamp and told me it is Tineus capitis (ringworm) which now in addtion to the coritsone I am putting lotrisone on my scalp and I will be stating antifungal pills on Monday. I am confused because none of the symptoms of these diagnosis has that you loose fatty tissue under the scalp and have an indent. So I am not sure if any these diagnosis are correct. I really need advice before I loose all my hair. I am very depressed and I have been crying everyday. I can't see how it could be ringworm when My daughtere and husband have been using my brush and thank god they have not gotten it and I know ring worm is very contagious. I would appreciate any advice or leads on what it may be.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
