In some cases, it can also be a result of certain cancer treatment drugs. The usual symptoms are small, soft bald patches, skin lesions, dandruff and scarring. Stress can cause baldness, which can be reduced by participating in relaxing activities like walking, listening to soothing music and enjoying leisure time.
