Hairfall and Minoxidil
I am a 20 year old female, and have had hairfall since 14-15 years of age. I took acne treatment containing isotretinoin when I was 15 years old for 6 months. My hair is very weak, and falls easily. Recently I have been suggested by some people that I might have female pattern hair loss. I have evenly thin hair all over my scalp. How can I confirm this? If not fphl, what else could it be? If it is infact female pattern hairloss, is it advisable to take a Minoxidil medication course long-term? What are my other options?
