The hair cycle normally consists of growing, resting and falling hairs and there is a delicate balance between these stages of hair cycle. Normally hair should regrow but if it is not happening, you should consider seeing a dematologist. The other condition probably is acanthosis nigricans.

There are multiple issues and cannot be dealt with an online consultation. The concept is to make your skin better from within and the changes will be appealing.Meet a Dermatologist who can understand your issues seriously.
