My bf gradually loses all his body hair every September. His skin gets a bit red and then that 3" x 4" patches of hair falls out over the next several days. Several days later other sections of his body go thru the same thing. Then he gets annoyed at all the hairless patches and that the is bed is covered in hair every morning and shaves or Nairs the rest off. He looks like he has a bit of a sunburn especially on his back and shoulders although he never takes off his shirt outside. By December it will all slowly grow back until next Sept. THis is the third year in a row this has occurred. He is a maintenance men and works around electricity in a coal power plant. He is 56 and takes vitamin supplements and sudafed for allergies, has no known health problems. He has not changed any soap or laundry or personal care products. The hair on his head is unaffected the whole time, although he does have male patterned baldness, but it has not changed in 5 years.
