Does she also have a black spot on her right side? If so these are probably the scent glands! Not sure about the fur loss - how old is she?

Pinkneon is right about a Syrian's scent glands. One on each side on the hip area.
If you look at the thread I started Mocho' s fur loss just below yours, you can see the photos I have posted and the advice given there by others. Hope it helps you too.
