This is likely to be alopecia areata, which is autoimmune disorder of hair follicles.

This may rarely cause skin swelling.

A biopsy of the skin and hair follicle may be advised for the confirmation of the diagnosis.

Steroid cream and Minoxidil are the treatment.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

What about out dissecting folliculitis as possible
Customer reply replied 3 months ago

Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 3 months ago

There is a possibility of it.

Usually there is pain associated and other signs of inflammation like tenderness.

It is privilege assisting you.

It is tender to the touch
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Googling that alopecia areata the pictures don't look anything a like
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
It has been painful not so much anymore
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Hair follicle infection is a possibility but symptoms usually are more significant.

Biopsy is the clinching for the diagnosis.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
