Hair Problem Has Been Taking Care Of... But Something Worse Has Happened.



posted this on the forum on April 04--

Well I have some good news since my last entry. My hair loss seems to have mostly stopped. It first increased to about 50 hairs a day for 4 days and now my hair loss has almost completely stopped these last two days. I can actually run my hands through my hair and have no hair on my hands. I hope it lasts. If it comes back I will report it here.

Since the 31st I have been taking:

  1. Nutrigold 1200 mg of Omega
  2. Nutrigold Vitamin D3 Gold 2000 IU
  3. Now Foods Iron Ferrochel 18 mg
  4. Nutrigold Biotin 5000 mcg

Shower every other day and use both of the following:

  1. Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care with Almond Oil 2-in-1 Dandruff Shampoo & Conditioner
  2. Biolage Strengthening Conditioner ( I pour tons of it on my head ) <---------Stopped itching way better then head and shoulders but does not prevent dandruff.

I have no idea if any of the above made a difference. I purchased it all in a panic because I told myself If I kept losing hair I would stop tasking Amnessteem, and I really did not want to stop taking it.

F.Y.I I am on day 23 of Amnesteem.


OK so since then my face actually has started clearing up : ). I have gotten one compliment telling me how much better my face is looking so that is nice. I posted some pictures, I believe my skin looks a little better.


Now for some really bad news. I have overcome the hair problem but. TMI WARNING Some people may find this offensive, when I wiped there was blood on the toilet paper today.Just Great. I do not blame isotretinoin completely because I have noticed a itch/burning around there for about a week, If I took some action then maybe this would not have happened. I told myself I can just tough it out, it will get better on its own.If I had to guess using my Google kunk-fu, I probably have a anal fissure. You know, we have chapsticks for our lips ( that I use every hour ) but what about for our anus? Were is the anus chapsticks? Anyone know?

This might be TMI but out of desperation I purchased Vaseline, used some exam gloves and put some Vaseline there. immediate relief, got rid of the ittching/ buring in a few minutes. I just wish I did this a week ago before it became such a problem.

Starting today, I have decided to stop taking Isotretinoin for a few days ( maybe 5? ) to help speed healing and I will tell my dermatologist about this when I see him on April 8th and see how we should proceed.
