I had kidney tx 12 mnths ago.I have slightly baldness, alopecia.What type of hair product shall I use for my hair regrowth?Using(tacrolimus, mycophenala

Switch tacrolimus: Alopecia is a recognized side effect of tacrolimus (fk 506). If it is truly a new problem (started after tne transplant), there are 2 possible strategies. Sometimes using a zinc supplement helps. But the simplest + most effective approach is to ask your transplant team to switch the tacrolimus to cyclosporine, another very effective immunosuppressant. The team will usually agree. Good luck. ...Read more

Im 25 years old I lost my hair & bald now.Can I have a hair regrowth.?

Hair loss: It depends on why you lost your hair . If you had chemotherapy, your hair should regrow when the treatments are done. If its a family pattern to go bald in youth, it's not likely to come back spontaneously. Fortunately, baldness is very stylish right now. But if you're not a fan or if you're a woman, there are other options for you. This can be hard to adjust to, though. I'm sorry for your loss. ...Read more

Cosmetic healing requires a few days and the results are permanent. ...Read more

The only drugs that are fda approved for hair loss in men are Propecia and rogaine (minoxidil). Consult with your dermatologist for an appropriate treatment that fits your needs. ...Read more

I read some meds can break down collagen in hair follicles and cause hair loss. Any foods to eat to help build levels up to promote hair regrowth?

I read some meds can break down collagen in hair follicles and cause hair loss. Any foods to eat to help build levels up to promote hair regrowth?

Internet fantasy: There's not even any collagen worth speaking of in hair follicles. I've been looking at them under the microscope for a half a century. This stuff is made up by "natural healing folks" who pretend to be your friends. A few meds can produce hair loss but this isn't due to collagen problems. Further, food choices aren't the key to managing this or the vast majority of other health issues. Cheers. ...Read more

I read that accutane can cause hair loss due to vitamin a, but that topical tretinoin cream can cause hair regrowth. How does this make sense?

It doesn't: Because this is not the case, may be with some anecdotal cases, but not the norm or a common effect or side effect, the drug works on the sebaceous glands not the hair follicles. ...Read more

Traction alopecia is the medical term for the permanent obliteration of the follicle. Hair quality improvement after pulling ceases will take up to a year. After that, transplants are needed to restore growth. ...Read more
