I have a patch baldness on the front left side (left side of hair line)on my head. I have gotten burned there a few years ago by antifreeze, fresh from the car radiator. The result was after a good half hour, the skin began to peel off at the spot the antifreeze touched. I was wondering, will my hair ever grow back again or do i have to take another route to solve this issue? I have another issue, I am losing hair on top of my head, I do not know why it is happening but I want to solve this issue too. It is said that it runs in the family. Do you have any suggestions in solving both problems? If so please inform me along with prices. Thank you.
It sounds like you have a couple of things going on. The chemical burn might be secondary to genetic male pattern baldness. To get the diagnosis of genetic balding, you should get your hair mapped out for miniaturization and consider taking Propecia (finasteride 1mg) if indicated by your doctor. I really can’t tell you if the hair will grow back after the chemical burn, as I haven’t seen the area you’re talking about. You may be a good candidate for hair transplantation, but again, there are some factors in play that I don’t have the answers to yet without knowing more about you.
