    1. I'm not your typical hair loss forum visitor. I'm 44 and have at least 95% of the hair I had in high school. About 10 years ago I had a severe bout of dermatitis on my scalp. I left it untreated for about three months before finally getting a doctor to look at it. He prescribed Ketaconazole 2%. I used it as recommended and it quickly cleared the condition. Unfortunately, I noticed in the temple and surrounding area where the condition was most severe my hair thinned a very, very slight amount. I did some reading and discovered that the follicles may have become permanently damaged by the dermatitis. Nine years passed and no change since the bout of dermatitis. Then I did something foolish: Despite having 99.9% of my original hair I began using the Ketaconazole I was given in 2005 on my temples as a preventive measure. After about 2 months an entire square inch of hair completely fell out on one side and a slightly smaller area on the other. That was several months ago. Though I do see a few dozen short hairs growing at the new hairline, the area where the hair disappeared completely remains dormant. I've read Ketaconazole can accelerate shedding in the early stages of use but can it cause permanent irreversible damage in cases where there was no previous hair loss problem? Believe me, I'm very attentive to my hairline. I've watched it like a sentinel since contracting dermatitis. I would have noticed even minor thinning or recession. It was like a light switch, though. One month there was thick, plentiful hair on my temples, the next, a bald patch the size of a silver dollar.

    1. Hi All, I have been suffering from hair thinning for as long as I can remember and it has greatly impacted my confidence and self esteem and stopped me from living life to the full. I have very fine and coarse hair too which has added to my misery! I finally plucked up the courage to see a consultant after having a full set of bloods done at my doctors which ruled out any medical issues. I decided ( due to cost) to have an FUT transplant and was advised to go with 1750 grafts. The surgery was carried out by Elite Hair restoration at their London clinic and cannot fault the surgeon and the wonderful team I had the surgery in May 2014 and was hoping to see some good re growth but I although I can see the hairs sprouting through ...i was expecting more growth. What is a realistic time frame for hair growth? I have seen lots of before and after photos on sites etc and everyone seems to have fair or good re growth after nearly 4 months.?

    2. Female hair loss consists of many factors that relate to the body. Nutrition, hormones, and thyroid levels really account for a significant number of female hair loss cases. Dermatological problems, weight loss, and other medical conditions can cause females to lose their hair. I havenít seen many female hair loss cases. Our female patients are less than about 10% of our whole patient base. The loss is usually seen in front, but a small percentage of female patients lose the crown (back) after much age. Luckily, there are several natural and unnatural non-surgical solutions to combat female hair loss. Other causes for females to experience hair loss are age, medications, family history, hair loss pattern, and poor health. An online consultation would probably be a good start to finding a solution for you.
