Hi everyone, I have just joined this community. I was diagnosed with this miserable condition two years ago. I hesitated about going to my GP because losing hair seemed rather trivial. I notice a number of the posts are two to three years old and it would be nice to have some updates. I have seen a dermatologist who has prescribed Protopic ointment to be used twice a week. Vaseline type base and so unpleasant to use and messes up my thin hair. I have also tried Lumigan drops and take Nourkrin tablets twice a day. I do have a slightly underactive thyroid but I am on thyroxine. I used to have a lot of very dark hair and it just makes me feel to depressed to see it so thin.
I am sure that this condition is progressing and it really makes me depressed. I am thinking of buying one of those Thermodome light emitting helmets. Any opinions please, are they helpful or just a waste of money? Should be so grateful of your comments, I know that this is a relatively minor condition but just so very dismal and depressing.
