Teen son got new computer, now plays games with headphones a lot. And also watches Youtube using the headphones. And Skypes his mates, using the headphones. Recently I noticed a patch on his scalp which is pinkish and losing hair - right in the centre, top of head, right under where the band of the headphones go. He is 13 and has loads of hair, he has had nothing like this before.

My boyf has a theory that wearing hats causes hair loss... I have absolutely no idea if there's any truth in it.
