Thanks for the reply .

Scalp Dermatitis can cause itching , irritation , red scaling over the scalp .
You hair fall might be due to seborrheic dermatitis . If you do not have any family history of hair fall , MPB may not be likely if the pattern is general thinning.
MPB starts characteristically with hair frontal thinning and then procedes backwards.
Thanks and takecare
