I'm 27. In 2011, I had been on aldactone for 2 years and noticed my hair was thinning and greasy in a way it never was. I know part of this is due to aging and seasonal growth periods, but I've struggled ever since. It has absolutely thinned in the front in the last two to three years.
I don't use any products other than clarifying shampoo and moisturizing conditioner and don't brush excessively. I've never had a keratin treatment.
I have moderate to severe hormonal acne I'm treating now with antibiotics and hope to go on Accutane for the second time. (First was in college.)
In the past year, the following has broken me out--saw palmetto (horribly, even on eyelids), quercetin, bromelain, horsetail, a hair/nails/skin supplement with horsetail and choleline, b12, biotin, and now, folic acid (Doctor's Best). I've tried purchasing supplements separately to avoid them breaking me out.
I don't know what to do. I get papules and nodules in a single day from using supplements. I am getting a bald spot at my crown and want to offset it, but now I suspect even my daily multivitamin with Vitamin e and the smallest amoutn of biotin is keeping me from effectively treating my skin.
Can I drink more water? Take vitamin B5? Why is this happening?
A single dosage of folate caused acne in my neck (where I always get recurrent cysts due to supplements) and sideburns. They're huge.
