Greetings. Diffuse alopecia areata is not very common. However the diagnosis can be confirmed by a folliculoscopy examination or by biopsy. You'll need to see a qualified dermatologist near you. Also itching may be due to seborrhoiec dermatitis. So you'll need oral anti fungals along with certain creams and shampoos under prescription. Further queries may be sent on follow up messaging.. Warm regards
