This is a follow-up to Hair Loss from Propecia:
Well i also moved a couple of months before this happened. Also about two months before i moved, i dyed my hair. So im wondering if this could be telogen effluvium? Ive dyed my hair alot in my lifetime and it has seemed to make it thinner but never any hairloss of the front. And if it did it grew back and I just didnt pay my hairline much atttention back then. My Mom’s dad was bald. But thats about it. My dad has a receding hairline but he is 57, and he still has plenty of hair and i dont think he will ever go complety bald. No one else in my family is bald. I also have an almost bald spot on the side of the right ear and my hair is thinner on the sides and the top than the back. I have no good hair doctor in my area so please help.
Please send me photographs. With a bald spot now above your ear, it is possible that you have other causes for your hair loss, rather than pure genetic causes with MPB. Singular bald spots may indicate a series of other etiologies, including infectious or autoimmune causes. Any good dermatologist can address this and even with pictures, there is no substitute for a direct examination by a doctor. Dermatologist are all over the US. See the American Academy of Dermatology to find a dermatologist in your area.
