Que: I am 19 years old and for the past few weeks, I have been losing a lot of hair. My temples and the portion right above my forehead have become really thin. There is no history of baldness in my family, but could I be suffering from androgenetic alopecia?
Ans: Everyone loses about 100 hair a day and this is considered normal hair loss. Your case could be alopecia, but it could also be stress, improper diet or hormonal changes. Only a doctor, after careful examination, will be able to tell you the precise reason of your hair loss.
