It could be alopecia Areata(a type)..there are many types of alopecia...1. MPB 2. Alopecia Areata 3. Cicatricial alopecia . I understand that you want to know what alopecia you might have..but many times a close up of the scalp ..a close examination is needed to assess the scalp skin, the perifollicular area etc.. so my suggestion is that you make an early visit to your treating dermatologist so that the doctor is  able to examine and make  changes accordingly.
Next Steps
visiting your treating dermatologist please. And kindly go through this article please : I am hoping that you have altered your lifestyle so that it helps your treatment.
