Having only experienced rapid hair loss in the past month or so, the actual process of MPB is still a new concept for me.
After some background reading, I've discovered what is referred to as 'diffuse thinning' and believe this is the type that is most applicable to me. What I want to know is, are there any differences to this and 'standard' MPB beyond the areas at which hair is lost? Can it still be treated with Propecia?
It's all occurred with in a matter of months. Mainly on the left side of my head, to the point where I can see through my scalp in harsh lighting. My right side still appears somewhat the same, apart from slight recession in the temple area.
I'm just at a bit of a loss where I stand, if this is common or uncommon shedding, and whether normal treatments are required or is it a different condition altogether.
