Hi Dr. Rassman,
I had the pleasure to meet you at your open house and I think your great and honest. I have very very major concern right now. I want to have a HT and I think you said I am not ready, however I am going to be a NW 4A. I have been taking Rogaine foam for about 2 years now and for the last month I am shedding extremely bad and I mean bad. every morning about a hundred hairs on pillow. if I sneeze in sink I see 10 hairs in sink. the shower is clogging up the drain. If I run my hand thru hair over sink about 30-40 hairs fly out with each stroke.
DO I STOP THE ROGAINE FOAM? I still need A HT but don’t want to let this get completely out of control.
Thank You Very Much
You should be on finasteride. Didn’t I tell you that? If I met you and you’re a Norwood 4A, I surely would’ve suggested you get on Propecia.
Sneezing does not cause hair loss, and if you’re losing 30-40 hairs each time you run your fingers through your hair, your loss does sound pretty bad. If you stop the Rogaine Foam after 2 years, you’ll likely see more loss as the benefits from the foam will disappear. Come back and see me again.
