Some of the individual hairs on my beard get really thick and seem to fuse together with other hairs. These hairs are clearly visible upon close examination of my stubble, at least to me … I hunt these bizarre hairs like wild game then extract the bounty, mercilessly, with a shiny pair of unforgiving tweezers. If I rub the follicular carcass between my powerful digits, individual hairs separate from the seemingly single, thick, shaft. Moreover, when I pluck these wild beasts, there is no pain, whatsoever – they submit to my attack and exit the follicle, without fight or protest. If I pull a regular beard hair out, it screams in protest and fights ’till the bitter, painful end.
Are you familiar with the hairs I’m describing? If so, what’s going on?
I’m a 32 year-old male and I’ve been on Finasteride for almost three years. I break a 5mg pill into four pieces. I take one piece in the morning and one piece at night so I always have some in my system.
Thank you very much.
You’re taking 2.5mg of finasteride daily after only 3 years? That’s higher than the recommended dose for treating hair loss, but hey, if it works for you and your prescribing physician is fine with it, more power to you.
Some hairs grow out in 2’s or 3’s. It can be normal to see those on your beard, chest, or pubic area. You’re probably not seeing your facial hairs become symbiotic, attacking each other in a fight to death. Give your hairs some “mercy”.
By the sound of what you describe, you seem like someone who battles not only with hair loss, but perhaps an obsessive compulsive disorder. I will give you points for a highly creative email, though.
