What is it?
Thinning scalp hair is a common issue, for both men and women. It can be a result of genetics, hormone changes or a medical condition.
The dermatologist will often start by evaluating bloodwork for hormone levels and investigate other factors that can affect hair loss, such as nutrient deficiency or an autoimmune disorder. Topical OTC treatments such as Minoxidil (Rogaine) are effective for some people, but others may also benefit from other medications or therapies listed below.
