I had been on isotretinoin (twice) and always had severe hair loss and folliculitis. Will the hair grow back or is it permanent loss?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Normally reversible

Isotretinoin induced hair loss is normally reversible if you stop using the drug.
However you should have a full evaluation because it is possible that you have hair loss for some other reason.
