Re: Hair falling out

Thank you for your question. It sounds as if you may have alopecia areata hair loss. In this type of alopecia hair often goes grey /white and falls out. It often resolves spontaneously although we now think that it is better to treat it actively. There are a number of rteatment options available including strong steroid creams and gels.

I hope this is helpful.
With Best Wishes,
