Thanks for taking the time to review my circumstance. i am 35 yrs old and have been thinning for the last 5-6 years. I currently use minoxidil and the lost has seemed to stop. A dermatologist said it was MPb after a brief exam. There are a couple of reasons why i disagree with this. first there is not one case of any member of my family even thinning much less losing their hair. second my hair doesnt look like a typical MPB patient. i have a real good hairline and decent coverage all over the top its just thin, much thinner than the sides which are quiet full. i also visited a Hair center to discuss some options and the interviewer was agreed that it didnt fit the normal profile. I am wondering if it is a hormonal issue. I took accutane when i was younger if that has any bearing. Also around the time i started losing my hair i started to sweat a bit more than usual Any help would be greatly appreciated
Genetic variations are wide and family patterns do not always show balding. Now with that said, I would want to see you to map out the miniaturization in the head and then determine if this is one of the variations we see in genetic hair loss. Accutane clearly does participate in the process and if you are genetically prone, it may contribute to the genetic hair loss.
