So I went to see a new dermatologist today. Quick backstory first...was slightly thinning beginning around 2012. Had a baby in 2014 and postpartum TE changed my hair. Also, my Mom passed two weeks before my son was born, so it was a rough time. I lost density and saw more thinning at the hairline. Went to a dermatologist who diagnosed me with Androgenetic Alopecia and said Rogaine after having kids. I cried, she didn't care I was able to ignore the hair loss for a while because it wasn't that bad and I knew I couldn't really treat it if I wanted more kids. Fastforward to today. I wanted a second opinion and I've had a recent shed, most likely caused by a surgery 3 months ago, that is making me freak about my hair once again. My new dermatologist basically said that he thinks I have some genetic hair loss but also have hair loss related to stress response. He said my body hasn't had enough time without a stressful event to allow it to really grow back. Also, there might be other things contributing to my hair loss, including ferritin. He said my hair should grow back (up to 90% of it). He recommended 5000 mcg of Biotin and is ordering blood work. He knows I might have another child, so we're not starting other treatments just yet. Here's the thing. I don't think I trust that he knew what he was talking about. I want to believe him, he said what I wanted to hear...it's just not his speciality and that showed. He looked at my scalp and didn't say much. I asked if he saw miniaturization, and he said 'some, but not much'. He didn't know about PRP. He was super nice though and patient with my questions. I'm so confused. The first dermatologist was very straightforward about the fact that she saw miniaturized follicles and this guy didn't even comment on it. He didn't do a pull test either. I am certain of the fact that I have Androgenetic Alopecia because it's concentrated to my hairline and top of the head. I'm just assuming I have some TE too because I've been shedding more and have lost overall density over the years. Please help!! Should I travel to see a hair loss specialist?
