I used differin gel 3% for 3 yrs when i started feelin that may thick hair felt thinner then I started to have some strange sensations in scalp--very sensitive and painful-around this ssme time I also began taking one a day womens multivitamin along with a biotin supplement-pain got worse so i stopped birth control (yasmin) and oral minocycline been off all for 2-3 months when I realized I was still having sone disconfort in scalp (although not as bad). Dermo said differin would not cause hair loss?

Differin does not affect hair.
Differin does not cause hair loss or thinning. Consult your dermatologist regarding investigations to find the cause of your hair loss.
