Hey Dr Rassman! I’m approaching 23 years old, and have experienced some thinning at the temple area, and also some receding of my hair line. Although i guess this could be my hairline maturing, i’ve bought some folligen cream, Nizioral shampoo, and some proscar as a precaution. Are these products still safe to taken, even though i might not actually be experiencing any irregular hair loss? Just thought i would nip it in the bud so to speak! Thanks for your time!
First of all, you need a proper diagnosis and that requires a good doctor to assess miniaturization of your scalp. Do not assume anything. Your hair is too important to play Russian Roulette with. You should first know what is happening to you, then discuss the options with a good doctor. Taking Proscar without knowing what is going in is a mistake.
