I don't know anything about post accutane diffuse thinning.Hey man, do you have an idea about diffuse thinning from post accutane? I have some hair loss that’s sometimes patchy on the sides or on top. No family history of balding. Started a few months after a 6 month treatment of accutane. minoxidil has helped some but it’s been almost 2 years since I finished accutane and I’m not back where I was. Patchiness and general thinning. It’s not noticeable so derms don’t take me seriously.
one thing that stood out was my hair became curly after the treatment. Which is a sign of diffuse alopecia areata. I wonder if immunosuppressants can help.
heres a link of how common the issue is on accutane:https://www.acne.org/forums/topic/152239-the-answers-i-got-from-my-doctor-about-hair-loss/
