I’ve been on minoxidil for about 7 months now and it doesn’t seem to be helping. Is retrograde alopecia not androgenic? I always just thought it was a weird pattern of genetic hair loss but some people on this thread are saying there can be causes… is that true? What kind of causes?
I think that this may be some ill defined inherited issue where particular hairs undergo Apoptosis based upon programmed death. This also happens in genetic male patterned balding but that was defined for a huge population. I haven’t seen anyone who has ever done a study of retrograde alopecia with with inheritance as a focus.
