I had a question about men loosing hair. My husband starting loosing hair right in the middle of his forehead bewteen his eyes. It was like two wings and then it started receding on the sides and he is also loosing some at the top back of his head. He also gets like these big cysts like pimples on his head, like ingrown hairs that are very painful. There is absolutely no hair loss on either side of his family (mother and father) going back to his “great great” grandparents. Would rogaine help him or could something else be causing this?
I can not recommend starting any medications before having a real diagnosis for his condition. Your husband may be losing hair due to a reaction to local inflammations from folliculitis (a type of acne). If this is the case, his hair loss could be reversible with treatment of the inflammatory condition. My recommendation to you is to visit a good hair specialist for a complete evaluation before starting any medications.
Many people with genetic hair loss may bald from the middle and on the sides, keeping two ‘horns’ of hair at the side of the frontal tuft. This is an easy pattern to recognize and if you send me a picture of his hairline, I can render an opinion for you. Please reference this blog post when sending.
