Been gradually losing more and more hair, but in last 6 months it has gotten REALLY bad. So much so that it is now very noticeable. I've had my thyroid checked and it's normal. I also have extremely dry skin on the palms of my hand, particularly my fingertips...haven't figured if this is due to the arthritis in my neck or something different. This hair loss is really affecting me emotionally and don't even want to leave the house! I've always felt my hair was my best feature so my self-image is in the basement. Don't know what to do or ask next! Any suggestions?
