Hair Loss
I have recently seen a bald patch at the back of my head. Its about the size of half my palm and seems to be growing. What could the cause be? What can I do to treat it?

Hair loss could be from a number of things. It could be a hormonal male or female pattern hair loss, stress induced hair loss, a fungal infection causing hair loss, chemical induced hair loss.
I recommend that you consult your doctor to examine and determine the cause, treatment will depend on the cause. It would vary from removing chemicals or irritating shampoos, improving nutrition that is essential for hair, stress management and relaxation etc.
