Hi, in January this year I shaved off all my hair. So it's been growing back naturally. Last month. I noticed that I had patches on the back that looked like someone used scissors to cut off the hair. It's scary, what could have caused such hair loss and is there anything I can do to fix it?


This is a difficult one with so little information. If this is hairloss in patches, it could possibly be Alopecia Nervosa, which is hairloss in patches usually caused by stress. I would recommend a visit to your dermatologist to investigate this and diagnose it professionally.
