My hair is falling out and I don’t know why. I think I should see a doctor, but I’m not even sure what kind of doctor to see. My regular doctor is okay for UTI’s and strep, but I think would be pretty worthless for something that doesn’t have a clear cause.
My hair has been coming out for about two months. It’s to the point that I have to clear out the drain in the shower every time I use it and it’s noticeably thinning. I’m female, 31 and in good health.
- I have lupus, but I’m having no other lupus-y symptoms. The lupus has been in remission for over 10 years now. I’m not on any medications and I’m not currently under a rheumatologist’s care.
- Allergies? I had hives a couple months ago, right about the same time my hair started falling out. My husband has had a weird rash on his face. All of this started happening a couple months after we moved into a new apartment…which is really a very old apartment, c. 1959.
- I had a baby 3 months ago, right before my hair started falling out.
I’m having no other symptoms or stress. The baby’s been sleeping through the night for 6 weeks now, so I’m even getting 8 hours sleep every night. My diet hasn’t changed. That’s about it. Oh, and baldness does not run in my family, male or female.
So, what do you all think this is? What sort of doctor should I go see about this?
