    I had a scalp biopsy in Nov. I now have no insur. because husband lost his job. I started out when 1 spot and now have several and they have merged into about 3 large spots.Silver dollors size I would say. My dermo. told me in nov I had human pampilloma virus on my head from the biopsy. But these bald spots keep coming and I lose quite a bit of hair every day and they usually have some scalp on them when they fall. I can't go back to the doctor, because no insur don';t qualify for aid. The bald patches are not smooth, they are somewhat scaly.

    It is definitely an alopecia all right. Alopecia Areata is characterized by SMOOTH bald patches. But if the biopsy came back with HPV on the scalp, did he recommend how to treat it? If you don't get something done about it, it can spread (it is HIGHLY contagious from what I know of HPV ). HPV is a viral manifestation.
