Brief Answer: details required Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. Loss of eyebrows can occur in hypothyroid conditions as well as in conditions like alopecia areata. I would like to know the following additional things. 1. Do you have any known thyroid disorder? 2. Is there loss of hair from scalp and body too ? 3. Any other family member having similar problem? If possible please upload a photograph of your face. This will help me in giving a close diagnosis. There is an option to upload photograph on right side of query page. Please utilize that. Waiting for your response. Thank you

No know medical issues or disorders. I believe since I had my children, my body peach fuzz has disappeared and the grown on my arms is very little compared to the hairy arms I used to have. I don't know whether it is age, or there is aproblem. What do I need to have checked to confirm?
