Does using Creatine make you bald

Creatine produces DHT in your body. Although the cause of male pattern baldness is not yet fully understood, it does seem to be intimately linked to a compound known as DHT, or “dihydrotestosterone” This has been linked to an increase in hair loss which can be seen by a receding hairline (not the hair loss that starts at the back of the head

For those athletes who may be particularly sensitive to DHT, due to genetic reasons, the nutrients that are important for healthy hair follicles are blocked from being absorbed into the scalp. This will ultimately causing the follicles and to to shrink fall out over time.

This is exactly what minoxidil, which is sold in most stores,  does.  It had been found to remove or dilute the  DHT in your body and scalp area exclusively,

In my opinion if find you are starting ti lose your hair, and  if you are balding, taking creatine may VERY WELL slightly accelerate hair loss.  

I stopped using Creatine years ago for this reason

I believe the use of steroids does has the same effect also on your scalp line.

Does Sugar cause inflammation

The answer is a simple yes. Both Sugar and White flour can and will cause inflammation of your joints.

White flower is a simple carbohydrate, and it breaks down into sugar with the help of digestive enzymes.And when you put high amounts of sugar in your diet you cause the production of advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) ,This is then results in the production of cytokines.

Cytokines interact with cells of the immune system and the help to regulate the body's response to disease. Not to get too technical here but inflammation is one of the first responses of the immune system to infection. Inflammation is caused when cytokines, which are released by injured or infected cells are released. 

The symptoms of inflammation include redness and swelling, which are caused by increased blood flow into the tissue.
Also Eating foods that you are allergic to will destabilize your insulin and causes poor blood sugar levels, and this will leads to greater inflammation. 

 So I would suggest you avoid or limit your consumption of sugar and white flour,
