I recently saw a dermatologist for my thinning hair. I’m not familiar with the medical terms he used, but he has me on clobex spray twice daily and spironolactone twice daily. I so desperately want something to work! I use hairmax lazer comb and rogaine. I am seeing hair growth on the sides near the temples but not much on top.Please guide me in the right direction. Thank you
There is a difference in wanting something to desperately work and something actually working. Sometimes you have to face the fact there really is no treatments for some types of balding.
There is no right direction I can guide a desperate patient who will just about try anything. I realize this sounds very pessimistic but nothing (aside from Rogaine) you are trying has ever been proven to work. Clobex is a steroid with the problems associated with chronic steroid use; I’ve written about spironolactone here; and there’s also no evidence I’ve seen that the LaserComb regrows hair to any visible degree.
