The numbness I am experiencing at the top of my scalp and forehead isn't like a cold feeling, like my scalp was suddenly more like leather than my skin. A loss of sensation. Last night I supidly tried to apply minoxidil and a topical steroid to the one spot that burns the most when it burns (thinking if it is a hairloss burning maybe stopping the hairloss would stop the burning) and made my pain 10x worse. I felt my heartbeat in that area for some time and now I feel intense nerve pain. I think I just made the inflammation much worse, which would make sense because minoxidil is a vasodilator. Now the pain I was feeling before seems like childs play. I got my biopsy report back from UCSF. The previous report on the same specimen from anther lab said TE. This report says I have follicle miniaturization which is typical of Androgenetic Alopecia and a "non scarring alopecia" a "rage telogen follicle" no idea what that means. Follicle miniaturization?? I had absolutely no hair thickness issues prior to the hair extensions last November. Now suddenly I have Androgenetic Alopecia? My parent's have great hair. What is happening. Can miniaturization be caused by anything else?
