another hair loss story
I started losing my hair at 27. I was surprised when my wife pointed out a thinning spot on my crown as my father, brothers, uncles, and both grandfathers all have their hair. Only other bald guy in family was my greatgrandfather on my dad's side. Hows that for bad luck. Anyways, I took minoxidil for the first year and had to stop its use as it made my scalp itch and flake like crazy. I then took finasteride for eight months with no success, I only experienced negative side effects (low libido, weak erections, etc.) After I stopped my hair started shedding excessively so I started the quarter pill aday of finasteride again and after four months my hair stopped falling out, I also didn't experience side effects this time. I was ecstatic to say the least, I thought I could ride the MPB out until a better treatment/cure came along. Unfortunately for me, my hair started shedding heavily again 3 weeks ago and within the last two weeks my scalp itches all the time (I can literally feel my follicles being suffocated by DHT).
Anyways, my thinning seems to be diffuse all over, no true bald spots yet. Is there anything out there that I can do to save my hair. Any chance the finasteride will start to work again. If anyone else has had a similar experience please share as this has got me down in the gutter.
