Hi guys I went to see a derm about my hair loss (receding hair line and major loss at temples, sort of like triangle pattern loss at the front like you see with male hair loss, I have no loss at my parting), I've seen many derms in my time and none could really offer me any reassurance as to what it is; I've tried topical creams, steroid injections, supplementing. The only thing I have not tried is rogaine. Anyways I saw this lovely derm and he looked at my hair in the troubled areas and told me I have little miniaturised hairs amongst loads of really thick hair (my hair is thick everywhere else). I was just wondering if people could tell me what this means in terms of what I may have? He told me to start rogaine and just try it out for a year although I'm scared too.... I can try and upload pics if it would help?? Any responses would be greatly appreciated, thanks guys.
