Hi, i first noticed that my hair was thinning when i was 17. Around the same time, i got this weird rash on the back of my head due to poorly cleaned clippers at a barber shop. Now i’m 19 and it’s really noticable that i am going bald. I can now see my scalp and my hair line has receded at least an inch and a half. I am very young. I believe it has to be a vitamin inbalance. Right now i’m taking ULTRA HAIR, which is filled with Biotin. I’m too scared to take rogaine or propecia, becuase i read that propecia can stop a man’s erection. What should i do? Who should i talk to? And do you think the rash has something to do with all this? The rash is still there. Thank you
If you review the Age category of this blog, you will learn that 17 year olds can get male pattern genetic hair loss. Assuming that you are male and receding, that is the most probable diagnosis. You need to get a diagnosis; you should have your head mapped out for miniaturization and attempt to get proper control of the hair loss with a drug like Propecia. If you have lost the first 1 1/2 inches of hair line, then you will go bald if you do not take a real proper action and get control of your hair loss. Playing with vitamins when you are losing your hair like you described, is like looking for fleas when a herd of elephants are chasing you. You should be running for you ‘life’ (and by that, I mean ‘hair’).
