Hi all. I'm 20 years old. I've been on fin for 9 months, minox (once a day) for 10 months and nizoral for 10 months.

I've experienced no sides with minox however did get some pretty scary ones with fin. About 4 months in one of my nipples became very very inflamed and red. That went down after a week and then began getting lumps under my armpit. My immediate thought was "oh no.. could this be the worst of the worst?" I got a lump under my nipple and had to go for an ultra sound about 6 months in to my finasteride journey. Thank god it was nothing but a little extra fatty tissue - which I am more than happy to live with. I didn't stop taking fin throughout this time.

I'm not sure if the big 3 are helping me. I would like some of your guys' opinions. Both my parents commented on my hair looking much thicker after about 7 months and I have to say it is easier to style. However, over the last month of so I have noticed more hair coming out in the shower and more visible scalp. For a while I seemed to stop noticing a lot of hair when I washed it etc. I have read online that some guys have a shed around 8-10 months, so maybe this is what I'm experiencing.

These are some of my most embarassing photos for me. But I feel like I need to share them with you guys to get an honest opinion. Photo 1 is month 1, photo 2 is month 9, photo 3 is month 9 and photo 4 is month 1. Thanks for your opinion guys.
