    Rogain, Proscar & Retin-A

    Hello everyone,

    I have been using Rogain 5% for about three months now and started to noticed my scalp is starting to itch, maybe it has something to do with the Retin-A which is applied once at nice daily. But even before I used anything my scalp has always itched and I always get acne on my scalp or something so I am not sure if that has anything to do with it. I also started to use proscar 5MG cut into 4 pieces and I noticed sensativity in my nipples but before I panic I will wait to see if this is a side effect that will go away within a month and if not I will stop. The last thing I need is to be bald with man boobs
    I have a couple of pictures to show you and I was wondering if you can tell me if I am to late in trying to grow some hair with the listed above meds and what scale am I on the Norwood scale? My hair is short on here but it shows some details.
    Any comments would be highly appreciated and thanks in advance.

    Brando, I would say your a 5a right now. Depending on your age/donor density-- you have a couple of options.

    If you would like to discuss your options, please email me or respond on this thread and we can talk about how to proceed.
