I am a 65 year old woman who lost 98-99%^ of my hair over the past 2 months. At first I had burning and itching spots on my scalp and those patches of hair fell out. The burning and itching continues to move over my entire scalp and hair came out i9n handfuls, until I have a very small section on the top of my head with very very thin hair left. The itching continues here but that hair is not falling out. Does anyone have experience or suggestions regarding shaving off the remaining hair? Would this eliminate the crazy itching, or do I need to let it take it's own course?
I appreciate any input or suggestions as the hair loss has been shocking and depressing; and the side effects of itching are making me crazy.
