Hello from a newbie...any advice?
I came across this site, when I finally realised that I need help. I can't remember when I first started pulling, but it's progressively got worse over the last 10 years (got married and had 2 children) I suffer with eczema so growing up my hands were never still. I remember I developed some 'sores' on my scalp and to relieve the irritation I would pull the hair, as the area was tender the hair would easily come out. This soon developed into a form of relaxation initially at times of stress but I now I do it whenever my head is uncovered. I have hardly any hair at the front of my head and large patches on the side. I search for particularly coarse hair and now white hair! I have lots of coarse white hair now :-( I guess I don't really know what options I have and whether I'll ever overcome this, and whether I'll have a patch free head and my silky dark hair back. TIA
