hi..From what you have mentioned, I would definitely advise you to get treated with topical anti fungal shampoos,preferably Ketoconazole 2-3 times a week for a month.In most cases it takes 2-3 weeks for any change to occur. Hairfall however,might/might not be due to the same.If hairless is progressive ,before any therapy you should do few blood tests and know exactly the cause of the same.In few cases ,you might need an abdominal ultra sonogram and specific therapies for alopecia.
