Question: Help please İtch and Facial hair loss

 Trueblue - Tue Oct 04, 2005 4:07 pm

Hi all, my problem is I suffer from Seborrheic Dermatitis and now for last two weeks my sideburns, chin and moustache got very itchy first I thought it was because of the SD but later I started to see that I am lossing some facial hair especially around my sideburn area and it happens in irregular small patches with a very annoying itch. Also my eyelashes and my hair started to itch too but with no hair loss. I know this might sound like Alopecia but the itch makes to think that it could be a fungus, allergy or something else... Anybody with any useful info would make my day... Thanx...
