Hair Loss due to Acne

Recommended Posts

So I'm 16 and I had extreme severe acne for 2 years I finally got cleared w/ minocycline, zinc, BP, Aloe Vera, Acneaid and exercise Im sure I lost a lot of hair due to acne.

I used to cut my hair in a military fashion I remember a friend called my hair cut "the 90 degrees haircut" but now when I get a hair cut the receding hairline look huge I feel like not cutting my hair ever again

I asked the derm about my problem he said that hairloss starts until you turn 21 -.-

I really need help I miss my old hair cut and the hairline in the front part of my forehad looks so unsymmetrical full of holes as if I had alopecia

Please help

Got the same thing lol, is it stress induced or what? I usually cut mine real short.

Hair loss is not induced by the acne itself. You may be experiencing a rare reaction to medicine you are taking or possibly losing hair due to the stress your severe acne has caused you. Your best bet is to consult a specialist about your issue as you need hands on treatment to diagnose your problem

- Hope this helped!
