I have folliculitis which has caused hairloss at the crown. Will minoxidil regrow this hair? If it does, will the hair be lost once application has stopped or will the hair continue to survive on its own as my dermatologist says I have no MPB only the folliculitis.
There is a condition called folliculitis decalvans, which is an autoimmune disease that often reflects extensive hair loss. First, one would have to make a diagnosis (something I can not do without seeing you myself). If it is just a small patch from the infection of a few hair follicles that caused hair to fall out and does not reflect an underlying disease, then it might regrow. Minoxidil may help. I can’t say much more without knowing much more about you, what it looks like, and more of your history with the folliculitis. There’s a lot of info and photos of folliculitis decalvans here.
