Hi everyone, this board will not let me use paragraphs or modify the text in any way (I don't know this is probably my computer?)so I'm sorry this post is difficult to follow. I am female, early 20's, Asian. In brief, here are my symptoms: Severe diffuse shedding (300+ hairs per day) for a year. Lost 2/3 of hair all over head. Other scalp-related symptoms include itchy, sore, red scalp, occasionally pus. Thyroid and iron levels normal. CONCLUSION: DIAGNOSED TE. CAUSE NEVER DETERMINED. A year after decrease of shedding (now 30-80 hairs per day), no hair grown back, major loss of hair on crown. Scalp still itchy, sore, red, with occasional pus. FIRST DERMATOLOGIST DIAGNOSED ONGOING TE. DIFFERENT DERMATOLOGIST DIAGNOSED AGA. CAUSE NEVER DETERMINED. Soon going for tests for PCOS and adrenal problems. Won't get tests back until mid january so until then can anyone help? SORRY FOR DIFFICULTY TO READ POST AND MY POOR ENGLISH THANKYOU!!
