    Is it common to get it as you age?

    Does anyone else itch all over?

    I have so many questions... ugh!

    First I need to ask what are your diagnose? Androgenetic Alopecia?

    - It is more common to get Androgenetic Alopecia as you approach menopause or after, but it can still happen before (like me, Androgenetic Alopecia at age 23, starting at 20)

    - Yes, I itch all over. Wish I had some answers to what makes this happen! :/

    Mid 50's in perimenopause. Don't itch all over but do have an "itchy spit" on my back. Just typing this makes me want to scratch it! I think everyone loses hair as they age but not as much as I have!
