    Okay, here it is a month later, and the hair continues to fall out, and I'm really beginning to doubt this is androgenic alopecia. It seems that I'm losing it from all over my scalp, and not in the typical fashion someone with androgenic alopecia would, and it seems to be falling out pretty evenly. I've noticed it deep on the back of my head even down towards my neck when I shower. Still no clumps of hair, but enough where it's still a bit traumatizing.

    My doctor seems to be completely uninterested telling me to find some Nizoral over-the-counter, which is impossible. I'm still taking my iron, magnesium and Vitamin D supplements, but don't feel or see any changes. I still can't see any significant thinning. I had my hair cut two weeks ago or so, and the only real difference I see or feel is that the hair is growing back more slowly than usual, and when it grows back the texture seems to be different. I've been doing some research and think maybe it is telogen effluvium.

    Oh, almost forgot to mention. I got my blood work from early September back and it found a low total white blood cell count. Specifically, it found significanlly low neutrophils and unusually high lymphocytes, and high bilirubin.

    Anyone know if this could contribute to my rather sudden hair loss?
