Hi All,


I wanted to post my story in case it resonates with someone. I haven’t been properly diagnosed and do not know what to do next.


I am 43 now. At around 32 years old I started losing facial hair on my right cheek and the left one followed at the exact place on the opposite cheek. The hair lost does not grow back again. The bald patches expanded in a centrifugal manner, and, now, I only have very few hair on my cheeks, a 1/3 inch strip of hair under my nose, on my chin, the top of my sideburns, and some on my neck.

The same pattern of hair loss (first the right side and then the exact same place on the left side) started on my legs, my calves and - about a year now - my forearms. It hasn’t affected my head hair.


Notes: on thyroid hormones are on the low spectrum of the normal range. I suffer from mild seborrheic dermatitis.

If anybody has any guidance I would appreciate it :)
