Contact Dermatitis Treatment Led to Hair Loss
Hi, I have been reading post on earth clinic concerning hair loss. Last year my dermatologist was treating me for contact dermatitis around my eyebrows and nose. She told me if I had it in my brows I probably had it in my scalp. She prescribed Ketoconazole shampoo 2% and said to leave on hair for five minutes and then rinse. I had to get up in the middle of the night and wash hair, I had intense itching. My hair became very dry and the itching continued for days. I thought it would grow out normal but about five months ago I started losing my hair, it has gotten so thin and still very dry and frizzy. Even tho my scalp itches I do not have dandruff.
I think the prescribed shampoo damaged the roots of my hair. I have been using acv on my hair and it does relieve the itching some but my hair still feels dead and not growing. I had it cut real short thinking it would help but it didn't. If the shampoo did damage follicles is there anything I can do to reverse the damage?
