You seem to have androgenetic alopecia. You applied minoxidil solution, but you get reaction on face. I think you may be sensitive to minoxidil. So, avoid to apply minoxidil.

You may continue finesteride 1 mg daily along with biotin 10mg.

You may apply mild steroid solution on scalp. Cleanse the scalp with ketoconazole shampoo.

Have patience for the good result.

My 17 1/2 year old son was placed on Invega. For awhile he did well; then he missed a few doses. When we resumed his proper dosing, he has started with severe side effects (I think of this drug) like restlessness, hallucinations, fantasies, cannot sleep, headache...very very severe. He calls his mother Mrs. Leno and his father Jay Leno...the doctor just says keep trying ...we re scared and frustrated. Please advise

Hi I am 47 years old female . I usually wake up in middle of night with palpitation and then just armpit sweating. My hormone levels are normal . This happens mostly 10 days before starting period but I do sometime have other times than premenstural too. I take 20 mg propranolol BD and just 1 mg Diazepam before bed. It is like a waking up by a shock and very scary. My heart was checked and it is normal. My gynecologist prescribed low dose of estrogen but I haven t used it yet. Is these sign of premenopausal ?
