You have an infection of the donor area with multiple pustules evident on the pictures. You need surgical drainage of these pustules by your surgeon
One question. I was surprised you mentioned beta blockers as a possible cause. Could you point me where I can see if my dose daily for migraine prevention may be why? Also do you know the best source for which meds may or do cause it even if they aren’t readily listed as a side […]
I Am a 20 Year Old Male College Athlete Taking Finasteride. Is There Any Impact on Athletic Performance? Are there any treatments that won’t affect my endocrine system? I’m aware that muscular weakness is a well-documented side effect of Propecia. I’m a college athlete and I can’t afford the potential drop in performance that finasteride […]
I just started Dutasteride. What’s this about the half-life allowing you to take it less often than fin? The half life for dutasteride is 6 days (this is in the blood), but the tissue life (at the hair follicle itself) lasts much longer–possibly weeks or even a month. Less frequent dosing is ok, in my […]
The photos say it all. Keep on it and it will only get better.
These photos are better and I was able to zoom in on them. There is no significant miniaturization present. You have what appears to be a lower than average donor density, not miniaturization. To have DUPA (Diffuse Unpatterned Alopecia) there must be significantly more than 20% of the hairs that are miniaturized, which is not […]
The pictures are worth 1000 words. Many young men want to take control of their destiny and are actively involved in their hair restoration process. This man used the dermaroller often enough to make him feel good about himself.
I’m currently taking fin 1mg with great results of hair retention. Do you think cutting to 0.5 or 0.25 mg will still maintain efficacy? I am getting moderates amounts of hypotension and dizziness when I stand ok and wanted to see if reducing dose would help. Finasteride doesn’t produce low blood pressure. I suggest that […]
Should i just wait until i’m 18? I have a good amount of hair but i can see thin parts when i pull my hair or especially when i get out the shower. And do i take fin for the rest of my life? I have prescribed finasteride for many 17 year old males. It […]
It is clear that minoxidil clearly works! You must stay on it to keep the hair as the hair is minoxidil dependent.
A recent study shows conclusively that there is no association between male breast cancer and those people taking finasteride (Propecia). http://cebp.aacrjournals.org/content/early/2019/04/19/1055-9965.EPI-18-0904
Been feeling a little pressure on the left side of my chest the last days, I’ve been on minoxidil for almost 2 months now and it just started. Now I’m not claiming these sides are common or anything, if you’re starting minox you shouldn’t be discouraged by my results. My question is, do these tend to […]
Male 40, Norwood 2, previously thick hair before TE, diagnosed with TE after a trenbolone steriod cycle + fasting + excessive lifting. TE has been going on for 3 months. Derm did not really examine my hair. 1 thing I’ve noticed since onset is that most of the hairs shed are 3 cm or less […]
These bumps indicate either inclusion cysts from buried grafts or infected buried grafts, and they should be drained by your surgeon
