Hello

Thanks for posting your query.

By taking the medications, androgens are not converted estrogen, the level of androgens i.e dht rise and hence the alopecia.

Propecia i.e finasteride would help as it is a dht inhibitor , however I need to know the dose and duration of propecia that you have been taking.

Thanks

Hello. I have a very complex question. I understand there is a money back satisfaction so if you cannot give me a credible answer let me know. I was taking a supplement for working out. It created gyno lump in my chest. So I asked around and people told me to take anastrozole and letrozole to reverse this. I did so and now I have NO HAIR AT ALL. I took it for roughly two weeks. How can I reverse this? I'm on propropecia and it's not helping. What's s reverse medication ? It's been a year since I stopped and my hair still is gone. While I was doing this I used Rogaine and it dried my scalp to a crisp. I stopped that as well. I know it's a lot of bad and I should have asked professionals ahead of time but is there a procedure to clean my scalp so it's not blocked ?

I've been cutting up a 5 ml tablet into 4 pieces and taking one a day. I also have a dime sized patch of complete baldness on my goatee/chin. This is getting so embarrassing for me. Please help.


Hello,

Thanks for your reply.

Is it possible for you to send me a picture of the bald patch?

Is that the only area of hair loss?


Patient replied :

Here's my symptoms. Dramatic loss of hair on scalp. When I wear a hat it gives me a terrible migraine. And also a slight bump near my crown on my head appeared. Also right after the Rogaine it was raining dry skin off my head. I have gyno lumps in my chest. And there is a dime shaped bald spot on my chin. I recently shaved so I have to wait a couple days to show you a pic. Should we wait a couple days ?


Hello,

Thanks for your reply.

Yes please do send me a picture after a couple of days. We can surely wait.

Regards
