My 15 yr old daughter’s hair has been thinning & it’s heartbreaking to watch her go through this. This has been going on slowly but surely for a few yrs & is almost certainly hereditary. Thyroid tests are normal, and, most tellingly, her maternal grandmother has lost most of her hair. Can Rogaine be prescribed for someone so young?
I would think you need to start with medical exam and a good working diagnosis for the cause of the hair loss. Your daughter needs to see a physician who can help and who is knowledgeably about various medical conditions, as hair loss in 15 year old girls generally reflects that something may be going on in her body.
Rogaine (minoxidil) is not recommended for women under 18 years old.
