i am a 20 year old male and a college student. my hair is semi long. lately ive been obsessing over my hair because it appears to have been rapidly falling out. over the summer i obsessed over my hair and it got seemed to get worse and worse, then i stopped obsessing and it seemed to get better, but not completely. my uncles are mid 40's and up and most still have hair on the top of there head (not to much though). my hairline is receding slightly, but about the same as everyone else i know. i non stop inspect my hair and run my fingers through and do tug tests, i have also always had a habit of pulling hair out. i also have a poor diet and alots of stress. I recently developed hives that break out when i get to hot. i am not sure what is causing my hairloss. its getting bad on the entire top and seems to be thinning everywhere. im a mess please help
