View Full Version : Bald spot developing in crown?

03-24-2011, 10:52 AM
Just wondering in this photo, on the left side of the split looking down, the area that you see the hair strands or roots where it's kind of brown/peachish, are these hairs that are thinning or miniaturizing or is this just normal? This is the area right next to see where you can physically see the thin line of scalp and then see maybe hair strands & a lighter area & then you start seeing strands of regular hair color.... not sure if I'm crazy but if this is a huge bald spot in the development.

Also is this something that you could thicken up or possibly be affected or fill up from rogaine or propecia and something that should be addressed immediately?

Thanks guys..it's just been really messing with me.

Also too, don't know if it really makes a difference but this is with a flash on the camera.

Thanks for the reply and would you consider this really bad mpb or thinning?

Would anyone else diagnose that maybe that I should look into rogaine or propecia for this or that I'm overworried and should just leave this alone...just afraid that this is a bald spot developing in unconventional way.

It is very difficult if not impossible to tell from your photos. If I were you I would find a doctor who could give you a complete hair miniaturization exam. Then you could make an informed decision about propecia and rogaine. Just because a poster on a hair loss forum has over 1000 posts does not make him an expert on anyones hair loss but his own.

I should add however that if I saw you in a crowd I would not consider you having any noticeable hair loss.

Mlao, thanks for your time and very good advice! I have a bit of an OCD/BDD too and just found out yesterday that I have an overactive thyroid.

Again, thanks for commenting.
