If I go to a doctor and use minoxidil, finasteride, ketoconazole shampoo...etc

Does my doctor need to know this? If he/she is only checking my flu to prescribe something etc? My dad is going with me so definitely don't want to mention the stuff I use.

I will just keep it to myself unless it have to out myself. There won't be any blood tests or any crap so I should be fine, right?

I always fully disclose everything to my doctor. If you choose not to, just ask your pharmacist if the drug he prescribes you has any known reactions with the hair loss drugs.

Moreover, there is no cure for the flu so there is not much your doctor can do, aside from giving you something to alleviate the symptoms.

Pick up some Nyquil and wait it out. You'll get better in a week or two.

Yeah, but I am guessing he will give me something like an antibiotic or something. That stuff always works for me lol. I doubt there will be any interactions or that I will have to say anything about what I use for my hair.

which is a ton of stuff right now lol

But yeah, I usually can't wait it out. I am not that familiar with the names in english since it's not my first language but yeah...if I wait it out I get extremely sick. It never gets better.
