Just thought I would update.

- 39 years old
- 6 months rogaine foam 2 times a day
- 4.5 months propecia
- itching started about 1.5 years ago
- hair was solid 1 year ago

So here is my update

I posted 2 weeks ago and had a massive shed with extreme itching - I was freaking out - hair was coming out every time I would run my hands though my hair (I would get 5 or 6 hairs every time ). I have been to a transplant surgeon - dermatologist - primary physician and all have confirmed I have about a 50 percent density loss. Hair looks much worse now then when I began but I figured if I don't give it a shot I will be bald anyway 😔 But on the upside within the last 2 weeks the itching has finally stopped about 90 percent and there is definitely a reduction in shedding. Hair still looks bad but it gives me hope. I will continue on the propecia and continue to update here to try and help those looking for answers. I would love to hear any similar situations - hopefully with positive outcomes👍

Sound good if you ask me! Trying to stay positive is the hardest part, for me anyway.. Maybe include some pictures? I'm curious
