If you're going to answer, please give me details as to why you answered what you said. Does alopecia universalis, alopecia totalis and alopecia areata all start with round bald patches? I understand with universalis body hair is lost as well and with totalis, it's complete baldness on the scalp and areata isn't. So I need to know. I'm not including androgenetic alopecia. Just the 3 types I've mentioned unless aga also starts with round patches but from what I read, it doesn't. I'm 19 and currently having massives amount of hairloss with crazy thinning. I'm suspecting it's telogen effluvium but not sure. I don't have bald patches but this is really making me cry thinking I'm going to go bald. I have a derm appt on the 21st but that's too far. I'm trying to rule out alopecia. Please help
