Hair Loss (Definition)

Sometimes children will get a bald patch where rubbing can cause friction and hair loss, but that too will come back. ...Read more

Varies: cannot say in your particular case, but generally, once the illness is over the hair comes back. Judging by me minoxidil, it is about the rate of beard growth... definite stubble in a week. ...Read more

Rogaine (minoxidil): If the complete work up of your hair loss, including blood tests for vit d, b, iron, thyroid, cell count, hormones, and biopsy were normal, then you can start rogaine (minoxidil). Rogaine (minoxidil) prevents cycling of hair follicles, keeping them in growth phase. It works by blocking the chemical signal which instructs hairs to fall out. You should see a difference in 6 mo, and should stay on it indefinitely. ...Read more
