I am 25 and experiencing hair loss at an alarming rate lately. I grew up with great hair and bangs that could cover my whole face. Around when I was 21 it started taking longer to grow out up top and my doctor told me it was just male pattern baldness. I went to a dermatologist, (which took several months of waiting for approval and appointment to finally happen) she casually prescribed me Finesterine after spending all of 2 minutes with me and I didn't take advantage of using it until I was 24 and it was getting really noticeable. Now it is starting to get a little better (you can see just a bit less scalp) but the past month or two it has been falling out in CLUMPS attached to yellow-ish skin. I can feel my scalp and it feels like I am touching something sitting on top of my head, as if the whole first layer scalp is dead and ready to be peeled off. I eat healthy and wash my hair (without scrubbing too hard or I will lose more) regularly. The only unhealthy habit I enjoy is smoking marijuana daily. ANY idea as to what is afflicting me would at least make it easier to live with, even if it is something terrible. Also, should I be peeling the loose parts off or leave them for treatment? I am resisting but every once in awhile I will see a large chunk fall down my line of sight and freak me out more than the skin-peeling scene in Poltergeist.
