Mold Is Causing Hair Loss?
Hi Ted just want to tell you that for someone to actually take interest in hair loss and research into it Is incredible. I just want to ask you a question on hair loss...
I'm a 21year old male, healthy, always had thick hair. My ferritan levels are fine, hemoglobin is fine, b12 fine, thyroid is fine. I have diffuse hair loss on my scalp, eyebrows and eyelashes. For about 4 - 5 months.
My dermatologist says that it is telogen effluvium caused by excess b5 dosage I was doing in march/April to treat acne. I personally think my hair loss is caused by mold exposure in my bathroom near the shower and the bathroom ceiling as I have other symptoms of mold exposure (itching rectum, eye floaters, a little tired, a little weeziness). All of the hairs I find look like telogen hairs with the white bulb at the root, sometimes I find the hair with some dandruff looking stuff at the root as well.
I use head and shoulders every day as I get slight dandruff without it. I'm getting a skin prick allergy test done next week to test for molds. Just wondering if there's any help you can offer me! I'm desperate if you can't tell. I'm willing to try anything you say. The tin remedy you have talked about sounds interesting?
