    The numbness and shrinkage happened after one pill. Stopped after the 2nd pill. Still hasn't gone away. Freaking out.

    I don't have the patience or capacity to read another study on this shit.

    I will tell you this - for me, one year on finasteride = eternal scalp inflammation. that's it for me. Seemingly, my scalp will be fucked for the rest of my life. Like little, gnawing termites trapped and trying to crawl and chew their way out.

    the guys are just hypogonadal (they have the main symptoms of hypogonadism). that's what causes upregulation of AF. tissues are lacking androgen. for the controls, these T levels are normal. everybody has his own T level that's normal for him. you can find plenty guys with 10 nmol/l with okay libidos and muscle strength. the pfs suffereres probably used to have 20 nmol/l or more

    also men with Androgenetic Alopecia have less CAG-repeats, so their androgen responsive genes are more active -- perhaps that's why their cells are starving of androgens all the time and yelling that with more AR

    Who knows man... scalp inflammation is still a constant, and I am losing easily 80-100 hairs a day (with about 30% density). My entire front is shot now, see through everywhere. looks sickly. Can't comprehend how I lost the front so quick after holding on to it for 34 years... but oh well.

    I am taking about 1/20th of a 1mg capsule (.05mg) EOD and it seems to still be inducing inflammation, oily skin, increased libido, etc... don't know what to do now. Will stick with it I guess. Any recommendations?

    Nizoral shampoo, Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Oil conditioner might make your scalp feel better, and reduce the itch.

    If peppermint oil is no longer an ingrediant in Paul Mitchell, you can spike it in by buying the essential oil. For a while I was spiking my Paul Mitchell with peppermint oil, you need to leave it in for 5,10 minutes.

    By the way my sister had scalp itch when she was pregnant. I bought her a Paul Mitchell set and she felt a lot better.

    She was balding too but I didn't tell her as that would be mean. Her hair looks better now. Might have been due to pregnancy.
