My name is Pascaline,I have issues with my hair falling off like going bald at one spot.the bald usually occur after a while of itching in that area.with time,the affected area was expanding and at different places on my skull that I shaved my hair.
I showed the hair to a dermatologist who identified it as a fungi infection and I ketoconazole was prescribed for me which I took for over a month with no effect.I ran a test and I was told that I had e-coli and it's part of the reason for the hair fall.i was placed on fluconazole and other antibiotics and I started seeing rapid hair growth in the affected area but after the first dose,I noticed the hair has started becoming scanty again even with my continued intake of fluconazole and the itching is back
Please I need a professional help.i don't want to go permanently bald.
