I am losing hair in the centerline, in the sides, and also in the back. I do have hair thinning. I do not usually do tight hairstyles. And I do get pain when I wear ponytails. The pandemic has caused a lot of stress, but my hair loss has started before that. I do not know if I have an insufficient protein intake. I have added pictures, and I get itching a lot.
And I have to wash my hair frequently or else the itching becomes bad. A lot of hair has been falling out this month in particular, and it gives me a lot of anxiety.
Should I have to see a doctor?
