my hair is thin and i dont know if all the hair that falls out is because of the telogen stage. my family has no balding but my hair getting thinner and always falling out. i keep on pulling it out all the time and i am always stressed about it so i am all day pulling and freaking out. i went to a doc but she recommend me propecia right away. i dont know if i wanna be on a medication. what should i do? thanks!
Did you tell your doctor about your hair pulling before the Propecia was recommended? Propecia might help if you are a man with genetic hair loss, but it won’t stop you from pulling the hair out.
It sounds like what you’ve got is an obsessive compulsive disorder called trichotillomania. I’m not an expert on OCD, but a good place to learn more and seek treatment help is at the Trichotillomania Learning Center.
