A very brief look at Balanis "Antenna Theory" has the passing comment

The proximity effect increase losses indeed. The effect may be
substationaly greater than skin effect only. I have investigate by
myself this effect in solenoid few years ago both theoretically
and experimentally. Unfortunely I do not study this in loop. But it seems
that effect is large in loop as in solenoid.
