I would get a blood test as it could be a variety of factors....

Alopecia areata?

scarring alopecia?

mites? 

Allergies?

syphillis?

vitamin deficiency?

 

etc etc

Not saying it is any of those things but only a doctor will be able to tell you exactly what it is.  

 

Best of luck.

It is always of great importance to know that, when losing hair can be related by many causes, one of the most common hair loss is anemia or poor blood circulation in the head, stress and thyroid problems. 

 

but you should have given link in english language, not in spanish which i can't understand.

i just used google translator . . thanks btw

 

I am going to have in 1-2 weeks consultation with Dr. Aman Dua (dermatologist) in my local ludhiana region. Hope she can help me to understand my concern and give the right solution to fix this early stage of bald patches ...

From that Picture i would say that looks like a form of Alopecia, Areata Normally presents itself in this way, small round patches, you need to see a Dr as this is an autoimmune condition where your defence system is attacking your follicles it can also lead to complete baldness

@Melvin-Moderator

It was really so much helpful to know all aspects of my hair loss condition. It seems to be having alopecia areata as per general understanding or might be causing due to multiple disorders of my health conditions , but let me have full check up with top Dr and Plastic Surgeons of my region; to have it reviewed thoroughly.

I am fully prepared to get this fixed and sorted out as soon as possible, as i was totally unaware of my continuous huge hair loss before until recently having had my full hair removed by hair cutter specialist for some religious occasion 

Shall update the same soon

Hey Bill, 

How are you buddy. 

Hope you remember me man.

Here I am myself with my case of hair loss condition, what you can suggest on my hair loss causes, as it looks to be scary now but I believe it's quite in an initial stage and can be treated non-surgically treatment to fix this. 

Shall be looking forward to have your useful input and I will follow the same.... :)

Ram Babu,

While I do agree with Melvin that it does appear to be a version/form of alopecia areata,  I strongly recommend consulting a dermatologist or a trichologist ASAP.    It is important that you rule out any other potential issues that might be causing this before  making assumptions. Remember, we are educated hair transplant patients but we are not doctors.  Therefore, we can only advise you based on our limited knowledge and based on what we see and hear from you. 

 So in my opinion, while we certainly value your contributions here and hope you continue posting, please make an appointment with a dermatologist soon as possible and then come back and tell us what the results are.   Because if there is some medical issues causing this, treating the medical condition may reverse the hair loss without any need for traditional hair loss treatments. 

I hope this helps and I hope you follow this advice. 

Best wishes,

Bill

Hoping, I will be soon to get it fixed with medication, without surgical as noticed this is quite initial stage because I am afraid of getting injection on my scalp :(

I just checked up above hair issue to Dr Aman Dua.

After reviewing my scalp condition and arising hair loss patches, she has advised to go for Scalp Biopsy.

I am not much interested to go for Scalp Biopsy test, also bit afraid of scalp injections :( , after researching on the same on this article: https://donovanmedical.com/hair-blog/biopsy-refute

I am able to know that this test can accurately confirm us the issues, but not the recommendation to go every patient with this.

So I wanted to consult few more Top Indian Specialist Doctors on the same in order to get more fair treatment options than going for Scalp Biopsy or Surgical treatment.

Can anyone help me to know Top Indian Dermatologist Doctors?
