I got my blood tests done, Thyroid is fine, Iron(ferratin) was very low. Started with iron suppliments. My doctor diagnosed me with Telogen efflivium, but this seems different to me. I was advised by my doctor to start minoxidil 3%, but I read about its side effects and that you have to continue using it for the entire life, and if you stop the hair falls again. The balding is increasing upwards from the neck, I also have very less hair on my temples. Apart from this I have almost 50% of my hair turn prematurely grey. Can this lead to Alopecia Totalis?
