Hair loss with itchy, burning scalp driving me crazy, please help!!!!

I've been dealing with hair loss for a number of years now. It has been thinning all over and I've also had Alopecia (completely bald round patches around the head), which has come and gone.

Unfortunately in the past year or so the overall thinning has gotten much much worse, and is accompanied by itching and burning. It's honestly driving me insane, because the only thing that makes it better is cold. When the hair falls, I notice they come out with white bulbs at the end, and I've noticed that I have a little bit of dandruf but nothing serious (not scaly). Sometimes I also get little pimples and my scalp is sensitive, so if I move my hair my scalp hurts.

I've lost more than 50% of my hair, and I'm desperate!

I've tried so many things and nothing has yielded any results. Right now I'm pregnant, and I'm terrified that when I have the baby I will lose all of it :(

I've seen every doctor in the book including naturopath, dermatologist, endocrinologist, etc, but no one knows what is wrong. I've tried Rogaine, Amana, essential oils, etc. and nothing. I've also tried increasing/changing vitamins so I take Biotin, Biosil (silica), Omega 3, Vitamin C, D, E, and nothing.

I also eat healthy, work out and take care of myself. I've even avoided gluten to see if that would help although I've tested negative for celiac. I've also been tested for different thyroid issues and everything comes back normal.

I've gone through the ups and downs, determined to figure out what is going on with my body, but I am at the end of my rope here, and I just want shave my head and hide under a rock.

If anyone can help, I will be forever grateful!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please take a single dose of Arsenicum Album 200 and see how that affects in one month. Only one dose, not daily.

One dose means
If the medicine is in pills form 2 pills. Don't touch pills with hand. Use cap of bottle to take pills.
If the medicine is in liquid dilution form, 2 drops in some 20 ml water. Sip up slowly.

Please follow homeo restrictions like no coffee, no raw onion/garlic, no strong perfumes, don't eat or drink anything within 30 minutes before or after taking medicine.

What does Arsenicum Album 200 do exactly?

Is Arsenicum Album 200 safe while pregnant? That would be my only concern.
CChair last decade
A homeopathic remedy is safe during pregnancy when not repeated unduly. Ars is indicated here on the basis of totality of symptoms.

Just a thought, it may not be relevant. Were you on birth control
pills, or did you have an IUD? Birth control pills can have effects
on many people, and one of those IUD's had a lot of people
losing their hair. It is on tv now for lawsuits, but people are
still being prescribed and using it.

Take care,

I was on birth control pills for some time, but I've been off it now for almost a year, and I'm now pregnant.

I have thought about it, but again, my issue is how do I fix it? now that I am off birth control, if that was the cause of my hair loss, how do I reverse the damage?

Anyway, I'm still struggling to find answers to my hair loss. Thanks for your comments!
