How can I stop the top center of my hair from falling out? I have a bald spot, my head is sore in the area and around the bald spot my other hair looks broken off and thin, going bald too. I ve had my thyroid tested and doctor said it is fine. He seems to think it s alopecia . What do I need to due to stop this balding? I am a 53 year old female. Could I have some kind of disease? Someone told me another had the same thing going on with their hair and they received shots in their scalp and now have hair in the bald spot. What kind of shots in the scalp could make your hair grow? I wear fake ponytails to cover up the baldness and loss of hair.
Hello. Alopecia could be scarring or non-scarring.You will require investigation including biopsy to find the cause.The shots you are referring to could possibly be steroid injections,which are helpful in certain scarring alopecia.
