I am awaiting a doctor visit but I am losing hair with each

Customer Question

I am awaiting a doctor visit but I am losing hair with each passing day. I have other symptoms and my doctor sent me an antifungal shampoo. I feel like I need to make an emergency visit but I just want to know if you have ever seen what I have and might have an idea of what could possibly be wrong?
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: I am currently not on any oral medications, just anti fungal shampoo and I am awaiting an appointment from my doctor.
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: I do not take any medications and I am not allergic to any medications
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No
