I am 25 going on 26 and I have been losing my facial hair since around march of this year. At first I thought it was just the heat from welding and that maybe after a little time away from the heat my facial hair would start to regrow, But I was wrong..
I actually started welding on the 15th of december of 03 and have never welded anything my whole life. I have been attending Tulsa Welding school since the 15th of dec and have now started a job welding with fluxcore..
I am really curious if the fumes from welding gases might be the cause or even the intense ultra-violet light.
I don't have any redness, bumps or pain where the hair has disapeared. Nothing at all but patches that started on the right side of my face and is slowly spreading to my chin to the left side. It looks like A fresh shave (in spreading patches) that seems like will never grow back... PLEASE HELP !!!
OH YEAH, I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO GROW A FULL BEARD SINCE ABOUT 20, SO I KNOW THAT SOMETHING IS WRONG.
