Can minoxidil help chronic telogen effluvium? The trigger for the CTE is difficult to remove.

Telogen effluvium - chronic
I have had good luck using minoxidil and photobiomodulative treatments (i.e. light therapy - like the helmets and hoods) to resolve CTE. However, these treatments stimulate hair growth as well, which can start with more shedding, so you have to be prepared for that.
In all honesty, you might have some underlying male pattern hair loss, based on what you have said. Try finasteride for a year - most patients say the first thing they notice is that their shedding stopped. Big difference!
