seems like due to use of methemphatamine you have developed formication where person develops an itchy crawling sensation over the body. Due to scratching and pulling out of affected area, you have developed traumatic hair loss.
The only treatment available for the same is to withdraw yourself froom using meth.
Hope that answered your query.
Take care
