In Early Hair Loss Is Scalp Tingling Related To Hair Thinning?
Here is the transcript of this audio clip:
We never thought that male pattern hair loss, or genetic hair loss, was an inflammatory process, but it actually is. Patients, on occasion, will have this sensation of a tingling, or very sensitive feeling in their scalp. And this is often a very early indicator of genetic hair loss. What’s interesting is when patients start to use therapy with either finasteride — the brand name is Propecia — or minoxidil — commonly called Rogaine, these symptoms will go away.
