What could be the reason for no hair growth under the jaw ?

My son has a beard but there is a spot on his face under his jaw that is smooth no hair growth at all. The spot is about one inch around in size. He can shave his beard, but when it grows back the smooth spot appears in the same place. He noticed this about a month ago.

you must start homoeopathic medications , for alopecia areata or for any infection, as this will result in cure then treating the disease, these medicines are very safe, effcetive , natural and without any side effects .
if you start treatment at early stages , results too are expected soon.

Dermatologist Dr. Bharat Chawda's  Response
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
If the patch is smooth with no scales or itching then it is called ALOPECIA AREATA,and if it is itchy and has scales in it then it is a fungal infection(TINEA BARBIE).It is important to differentiate between the two conditions.For either of this you should meet a good dermatologist for treatment.Alopecia areata(AA) if not treated can involve whole of beard area or even scalp and body hair to lead to complete baldness.So take immediate treatment.Options for treatment are injection given on the spot,topical creams ,oral steroids to irritants which can help hair growth .AA can usually be associated with stress or other auto immune ds like thyroid problem.So get that checked too.Ifit is fungal then it can be treated with antifungal creams and tablets.
take care,
