View Full Version : Mpb itch

I've been on 1mg fin for 4 months now and was initially on 5% RU. I've developed this itch however and I want to know what it is. Could it be because I dropped the 5% RU? Or is it just part of mpb even though I'm still on 5% RU.

Itch could be mpb but depending on the severity and other findings you want to consider allergy and fibrosis https://www.baldtruthtalk.com/threads/20667-Frontal-fibrosing-alopecia?highlight=emedicine

My hair loss isn't severe at all. I have had slight temple recession and thinning overall but it's mpb in its very early stages. I'm still a nw1 just with thinning in areas where it is itchy

Dr. Rashid,
While we are on the subject, could you briefly recommend what shampoos would be best to battle any dermatitis that may occur while on these medications? I have read that anything with ketoconazol is ideal, however, just realized the propecia study was done with neutrogena t-gel and wanted to start trying that.
