Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice


Perhaps you have alopecia areata which commonly presents as focal bald patches of hair loss. Most commonly location is the scalp but ot can also present elsewhere like beard, moustache, eyebrow and eyelashes. I request you to kindly upload a few images of the affected area in " reports section " so that I am able to have a look and guide you accordingly.

take care
