Unwanted Facial Hair Growth From Follihair Tablet

sonia Says:

Hello. I have taken 5 tablets of Follihair and I feel that a few unwanted hairs have grown on my face and neck, though on my scalp it did not show any efficacy. Its been only a week or 10 days that I started using it. Is it a side-effect of Follihair? Shall I continue using it or not?

HI, Sonia! Sorry about the problems you're having.

Follihair is just a nutritional supplement that contains a variety of nutrients that are believed, but not proven to help with hair loss.

Thus, the question I want to ask is… How old are you?

If you have hair growing in unwanted places, but are losing it on your head, it usually means that you are too high in the hormone estrogen and aren't producing enough progesterone. Estrogen stimulates the production of testosterone, which causes that type of hair growth, along with androgens and the estrogen causes loss of scalp hair.

Do you take any type of oral contraceptive to prevent pregnancy?

My Mom is 43 years old and has been experiencing chronic hair fall since the past two months. The hair fall has been so severe that even brushing her hair with her hair is leading to strands of hair falling apart.

To give a little background, she has marginally high cholesterol, had undergone Hysterectomy 4 years ago, got her appendix removed, had undergone a surgery for carpet tunnel and had been cured of Diabetes (HbA1C 6.5).

For the above conditions, she takes Glimepiride and Metformin (Gluformin G1 Gorte), Sitagliptin phosphate (Januvia 100mg), Rosuvastatin (Crestor 20mg), Aspirin delayed (Ecosprin 150mg), Dosulepin (Prothiaden M).

After consulting with a local trichologist (the standards are pretty poor in the place we stay), she had undergone a few basic tests and we found out that she has Vitamin B12 levels of 1873 (recommend level 211-911), ferretin serum levels of 30.2 (recommended level 10-291), serum calcium levels of 10.1 (recommended level 8.3-10.2).

The doctor has suggested that the roots are weak and once the hair falls, the cells are being dead. She has used the term 'diffused hair loss'. The prescription given contained Follihair tablets, Orofer xt and Minoxidil (Tugain 5% lotion).

I have researched about Minoxidil (Tugain 5% lotion) and most of the reviews that I have read said that usage of the aforesaid drug accelerated the hair fall even more. Also, the doc has told that once a person starts using it, it shouldn't be stopped forever.

My suspicion is towards some kind of hormonal imbalance. It would great if anyone could tell me what exactly led to the sudden outburst of the hair fall. Also, what would be the best way to treat it?

If she also has grown some unwanted hair on her face for some time, then it can be a harmone imbalance. Read more about polycystic ovary syndrome on google. It the most common harmonal imbalance in women of age 18 to 44.

I am also having this. Im 20. I had severe hair loss and only on applying anything the hair loss just increased. On brushing my hair , my hair strands fell. For 3 months, I didnt get to know about it. But on ultrasound, a cyst was identified. I am prescribed aldactone .25 mg for it. Also follihair. I also unwanted hair on my face.
