My pals call me baldy

I AM in Grade 11. My friends tease me because they say I am getting old before my time.

I AM in Grade 11. My friends tease me because they say I am getting old before my time.

The problem is that I am losing my hair.

Even though I laugh with them, it really hurts me.

I don't know why this has happened to me and I don't know what I can do to make my hair grow again.

It can be very hurtful when your friends tease you.

Baldness can be caused by injury, disease, infection and ageing. It can be a problem that runs in the family and can start at 16.

Temporary baldness can happen after a severe illness, especially an illness with a fever. Temporary baldness can be the result of certain sexually transmitted diseases, dieting and medication.
