View Full Version : Developing a bald spot now?

06-03-2015, 04:25 PM
Life currently sucks as you all may know. I'm on fin and have been 1 year and 8 months when out of know where at one year mark I had a huge shed that seems to have set my on a path to baldness. My hairline receded and my part changed. Now I'm thinning on top somehow?

Anyway, evaluate please

Hey Ziggy, hope you are dealing with this o.k... but, you've posted about a bald spot and there simply isn't one. If there is, your hair is combed over it. Could most of this just be in your head? I know things are often either a lot worst than we make them out to be, OR a lot better. Our minds constantly f*ck us.

Not giving up

Buddy, I assure you, that's not a bald spot. You have really thick hair and it looks to be in decent condition, that's just a line parting. I've been shedding for 4 months now, and it plays with your mind, I've convinced myself of a million different bald spots that I would later realise was the just the mind playing tricks on me. Relax and wait it out.

Thanks for the reply not giving up. My hair got so thin and I can't pin point if it was due to a reflex from fin at 1 year or the fact that my scalp hurt and had to quit minox. I only applied minox on my hairline so idk why is be thinning literally everywhere though.

Right your issue is removing minoxidol, that's why you have experienced this major shed. Regardless you applying it only to the hairline, it will also have an impact on the whole scalp.

Which minoxidil brand was you using? Also was it liquid based or foam?
I also suggest sticking to one brand finesteride from the very beginning, do not switch brands.

My best advice get on some good shampoo like Regenepure DR, and get some Regaine Foam there is no irritation from the foam.

Jazz1, yeah idk. I used the foam at first but then switched to the liquid. When this all happened, I became a like hypersensitive to everything. My armpit got a rash from deodorant, I was getting irritated skin from Cologne, etc.. I quit about 6-6.5 months ago so it's kind of too late for me to start back up on minoxidil because I'll go through another shedding phase. I lost like a half an inch on my hairline from this and it's still shedding bit by bit.

I was actually thinking of using oral minox because foam and liquid dry my scalp to much. And if I don't do that, I need a transplant to restore me.
