I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Can you upload a photo of Thomas to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (not if you're using the chrome browser) or you can use an external app such as imgur.com or dropbox.com. I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing.
Loss of hair at so young of an age suggests demodicosis - the mange mite Demodex. An odor - often of smelly gym socks - is called a seborrheic odor and arises secondary to any chronic skin condition that is due to abnormal keratinization/maturation of the skin.
