hi everyone, i have this rare hair loss scar in the back of my head.
(if you know Rasheed Wallace famous NBA player) my bald spot looks like it.
I 1st recognized it after having a good haircut, until my friend knew there was
a circular hair loss spot in the back part of my head, its noticeable because im a white guy. im a sophomore college.
its a size of a token.lol i also have a small one side of my hair.

anyways, its already near a month but the hair follicles are too slow to be growing back.
so i thought of Posting here,before going into a Dermatologist.



peace out. :cool:

  • hi everyone, i have this rare hair loss scar in the back of my head. anyways, its already near a month but the hair follicles are too slow to be growing back. So is your hair follicles slow in coming back, or not there at all? The answer to this question will determine whether or not you really have scarring. If you have true scarring, the follicles won't come back. If they come back, even slightly, then you don't have scarring. You might have an area of hair loss, but hair loss isn't scarring. So, which is it?
