Q: I am twenty and think that I am starting to thin. I am also experiencing a slight tingling in my scalp. Are these related? — T.N., Philadelphia, PA
A: Most likely. Early androgenetic alopecia can be associated with a slight tingling or slight tenderness of the scalp.
You should see a dermatologist for evaluation and, if you have early male pattern baldness, consider starting finasteride (Propecia).
