My scalp started itching in certain places, then it got sore, after that, I realized, my scalp didnt go bald, but it looks like the hair in certain places broke in half, leaving only about an inch of hair in the crown area and certain spots in the frontal area. Does anyone know what causes that and what can be done? This has happened to me 2 years ago, but the hair grew back, now its happening again.

  • It could be ringworm of the scalp, or I know in my case when my hair starts getting brittle and breaking it usually means I have to have my thyroid meds raised. I don't get the itchy scalp though, that's why I mentioned ringworm. See a dr. if you can.
