View Full Version : Seeking some advice

Hi Everyone,

I've noticed over the last six months increased shedding (mostly on pillow or in shower) and my hairline receding. I'm in my late 20's.

I tried Rogaine, however it burned my eyes and made them red and I also saw weight gain/swelling. The symptoms went away as soon as I stopped so I feel confident it was the Rogiane.

I'm looking to find out what my best next steps are here. Should I wait it out or seek some other treatment?

I have an appointment with a Derm in 2 weeks and would like to go to that fully informed as possible.

Two images attached of the front of my hairline and side as well (sides look exactly the same).

Thanks in advance for your time and feedback.

you may want to trial low doses of finasteride for some duration. If you don't experience side effects with that, then you can just do that to maintain what you've got and delay any future recession of the hairline. There isn't a whole lot else you can do besides that.
