Body hair loss

I'm male, late thirties. My body hair, including pubic hair, beard hair, hair on arms and legs, and now eyebrow hair is thinning and falling out.

In just the last few months, I've lost most of my chest and pubic hair, and now my beard and eyebrow hair is falling out. Flakes of skin are falling off everywhere, especially on my face, where a fine white powder falls like snow if I rub or comb it.

I'm healthy and normal in every other way. I don't have excessive head hair loss - this is normal. Now that my eyebrows are starting to thin and fall out, I'm getting really worried. Tests show nothing. I've seen an endocrinologist, and he doesn't know what to do.

Has anyone had any experience with this, or know what it might be?
