hello ,
tugain foam contains minoxidil, which s for sure will help in hairfall control and also for some hair growth , but dont expect the density , if u r looking for the density and hair growth then the best option ll be a hair transplant by strip method ,its a one time procedure and u have to maintain ur scalp for 15 days after tat t ll get a normal growth.no further maintainence ll be required ,nowdays its not costly also u can get t done within 70k.

I have been experiencing this type of hair loss for 9 months now. Blood tests for Iron deficiency and thyroid are normal. I have undergone treatment from a dermatologist which included monthly visits for Kenalog injections and use Clobetesal nightly. I did not have an appointment this month as the thought was it may be my last affected area. Now I have 5 bald patches ranging in size from a nickel to half-dollar. It is thought that it is due to emotional stress as my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer last January and these spots started to appear the following March. My husband is undergoing chemo with little to not side effects and the treatment will add years to his life, so one would think I would no longer be stressed, I am grateful for that. I just don't know why these are still appearing and should I consider another method of treatment. I plan to schedule another appointment with my dermatologist and I am not sure what to ask for. Could you give me some alternative choices that I may be able to ask him about? I appreciate you being there. Thank you. Claudia Crowe
