Severe and rapid hair loss with itching

rajrnash,Rapid hair loss in a 24 yo with no family history of hair loss needs work up. Also scalp itching raises suspicion that something other than Androgenetic hair loss may be occurring. I would recommend that you consult with a hair loss specialist in your area. A scalp biopsy might be required to rule out a scalp condition.

I always suggest that men like you get a thorough examination including a HAIRCHECK measurement for bulok measurements to find out what you are actually losing that your eye does not pick up
