One thing that concerns me is that you seem certain that the hair loss is not genetic, has no
possible relation to illness, poor diet or environmental sensitivities, and is not the result of habit or behaviors on your part,
but are unwilling to see a physician about the problem. The situation is obviously troubling to you, or you wouldn’t have written
in about it, and certainly not such a long, explanatory letter.
Being concerned about abnormal hair loss is not a matter of vanity. It’s possibly a symptom of
another, possibly serious problem. Yes the symptom is cosmetic, but the cause may be less innocuous. Look at it this way: if you
suddenly began developing red spots on your face – no pain, itch or other sign of illness, just areas of redness and discoloration –
would you see your doctor? The red spots would only be cosmetic. My guess is you wouldn’t hesitate to give your doctor a call for an appointment.
I am not licensed to give medical advice, or to even speculate on potential diagnoses.
Therefore, I can’t tell you why you are losing your hair. However, based on your insistence that the hair loss you are experiencing
has no genetic, health, dietary, environmental, or behavioral origin, I think you should consult your physician to rule out possible
unknown health concerns. A general practitioner will possibly want to refer you to a dermatologist who specializes in skin and hair
disorders. If you already have a dermatologist, you may want to simply make an appointment with him from the start.
Seeing your doctor will either confirm that there is no medical cause for the hair loss, in
which case it is likely a matter of androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness), or a potential cause will be discovered and, hopefully, treated.
