In this audio clip, Dr. Bernstein answers a frequently asked question. Can tingling on the scalp be an indication of genetic hair loss?

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.
