At 43 & pre-menopause, I began year 3 of chronic stress. I noticed I my scalp easily visible thru my hair. Fearing permanent baldness, I saw 6 BoardCertDermatologists in 2 yrs. w/3 diagnosis':
"Female Pattern Baldness", "Alopecia"(both permanent),Telogen Effluvium(poss temporary).
All offered 1 solution:Nioxin. 2 expensive Nioxin yrs = NO change. Worsening facial acne spread to scalp,neck,chest,&back. I teased, pinned & sprayed my hair to hide white scalp.
Finally,a P.A. w/a Dermatology practice, asked if I was sick. She said: "You have acne AND balding? Female Pattern Baldness is common w/acne. A hormone, Androgen causes both. Honey, it's TREATABLE."
She prescribed "sprionolactone." My skin & hair are now NORMAL again.
DON'T GET DRUGS ON-LINE: Spironolactone is a prescription drug & should NOT be used by certain patients.Constant monitoring is required for safety. It may be a risk to patients w/family &/or personal history of cancer.
