I’ve been getting spots all over my body and random rashes appearing I’ve broke out in stretch marks all over my body and my hair has started to fall out

Hello! My name is Dr.Ehtisham. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

The rashes you have developed are likely due to viral infection or some allergy

The fall in hair can be due to seborrhea

That need an examination

You should start an anti-histamine like Cetirizine to help with the rashes

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Regards

It’s been going on since August so I don’t think it’s an allergy it started with the spots then the random rash and then I started to brake out in the stretch marks with no weight change and now the last few weeks my hair has started shredding and within the last week it’s got so bad you can notice it

Have you got the thyroid functions tested and have you been examined by the doctor?

Yes I’ve had thyroid tests and lots of other blood tests that are coming back normal I’ve been to a see an ent and I’m now being referred to a dermatologist and endocrinologist but the waiting time is months

I think that if the thyroid functions are normal then it is likely a skin issue

Hair loss can be seen with Seborrheic dermatitis

Some nutritional deficiencies can also cause hair loss

So a dermatologist can evaluate you further

Please do let me know if you have any other question
