Hi everyone,

I have traction alopecia on my temples and fully bald on top of my head (include a picture to explain) so a little bit of background. I have had this problem as far as I can remember. I grew up in a Sikh family so my hairs were very long and tied in a turban which I think caused alopecia. Anyway, I got my hairs cut when I was 12 but still, it has been over 10 years and it has really affected my confidence I normally do a comb-over or wear a cap so I would appreciate if anyone got any tips? I am too afraid to go to GP as I am very embarrassed
