When to Call A Doctor

Make an appointment to see your doctor if:

  • You suddenly develop a bald spot on your scalp

  • Your hair stylist tells you that your hair is thinning, or that you have small bald areas

  • You have lost your eyebrows or eyelashes, your beard is thinning, or you have noticeably less hair on your underarms or pubic area
