Alright, I'll apologize in advance as this is gonna be a long post, but if you've got the time stick with me for a minute. I'm currently 16, and last year, I thought I was going bald. I freaked and started posting here. People told me I looked pretty much fine, but to check my hairline every so often to make sure I catch myself early if I did start balding. Well, after that, I got sick. Allergy induced asthma and repiratory infections. I'm still sick now. I cough and sniffle constantly, and go through an XL box of tissues everyday. I'm on about 8 difffernt medications, however only 3 say they have an incredibly low risk of hair loss (.81% was the highest percentage I found for any of them) Now, I'm staying home most days, and I have noticed a lot of shedding. I typically notice 5-20 hairs on my shirt or in my hands and comb. Lately, I notice about three hairs at least every hour. They are from all over my head, as they are short, long and medium in length. This has me scared. I have not seen a visible change in my hairline, or the overall thickness of my hair. So, I am trying to determine if I have started balding now. This has been going on a little less then 3 weeks. Another thing I've been doing is the 60 second hair count test. It's the test where you shampoo your hair for three days, and then comb your hair for a full 60 seconds and count the hair that falls out. If you have more than 10, you are supposedly starting to go bald. Is this test accurate? My last count (a week ago) was only 6 hairs. Have you heard of this test? Does it have any truth to it at all? If you read this whole post, thank you, and if you have thoughts on what is causing my extra shedding, and if it is cause for worry, your opinions are greatly appreciated.
