29 yr old female experiencing major hair loss. Scalp sometimes burns, itches. I have that pain where the only way to describe it is "my hair hurts" which normally occurs if your hair is up for too long or it's pulled too tightly. But it does this even when I don't have my hair up. If I change my part in the middle of the day, (move my hair to the other side) I get that feeling. The only thing the doctor says is, "it's stress". I'm so tired of hearing that. Then they say, maybe it's genetic. Well, my mother and grandmother both have full heads of hair. Plus, I'm only 29. I did go through a major stress event about a year and a half ago which led me to break out with shingles (I think). I've been doing my own research and I've read that it can lead to hair loss. I didn't have insurance during my break out so it wasn't diagnosed. I had blisters underneath both arms accompanied by aching before the outbreak and itching during and after. The blisters would pop and leave an open sore until they scabbed over. This went on for about 1 1/2 - 2 months. Every now and then I still have that achy/itchy feeling underneath my arms but no more outbreaks. I'm just tired of not knowing what's going on and need to know what I can do to fix this. I'm terrified that I'm going to lose more hair. None of the hair that has fallen out has grown back either. Normally hair falls out because the new hair underneath pushes it out. But no regrowth. Can anyone here help me please?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
