I have had this problem on small area of my head and I was diagnosed with lichen planopilaris (a form of alopecia or atropic cictrical alopecia). I believe it was due to the high blood pressure medication I was using (thiazide diuretic) . I have stopped using the medication and applied the topical medication I was prescribed clobetasol propionate by my dermatoligist. Although my hair will never grow back as thick as it was in that area (due to permanent damage) the hair has come back.
