I know the hair loss isn't permanent. I've had it happen before - just not for this long. I was in the hospital on solumedrol and flagyl in April. Maybe it's everything building up?!!? (IV meds + Remicade + 5ASAs + Imuran) I find it really irritating to constantly be finding hairs all over and having them tickle or cause itchiness.
Although while I was on the steroids (IV and oral) I found that my hair didn't grow for about
a month - I didn't have to shave for about
two weeks! That was nice... So perhaps it's payback time?
Now I've got a bum tooth that's causing super amounts of pain and the dentist gave me penicillin. Everything seems to happen at once for me!
Thanks for all of your ideas, thoughts, and understanding :) I am curious about
the Rogaine and will have to investigate that more to see if it would be worth it for me.
