Over the last few months I have experienced profound loss of body hair. Loss of pubic, chest, leg, arm, beard, and now eyebrow hair. The hair is thinning and falling out. There is heaps of dandruff, particularly on my chin, where I have a beard. It's like a snowstorm if I rub it, and it never runs out.

Has anyone heard of this? I've seen an endocrinologist, who has no idea what's going on. All tests are normal. I've had no major issues or health problems, no major stress. I've lost most of my pubic and chest hair, and now the eyebrows are starting to thin and fall out, which is really concerning to me.

I don't know what to do. The endocrinologist says to come back in a couple of months, and by then I will have lost much more hair. The hair on my head is fine. I still have that. My problem is just body hair.

Has anyone heard of this?
