Thanks for the query. This is a common condition, and probably indicates a disturbed immune system. You have a  condition called alopecia areata, if there are well. Treatment is simple and has different approaches. You need to discuss with a dermatologist to understand it at length. Skin is the mirror of internal health and to get a perfect skin you need to treat both ways - internally and externally. A healthy diet and lifestyle is mandatory to achieve results. Injection therapy has to be done once in 3 weeks time for 2-3 sessions.
