Male pattern baldness, can I wait 3 months? Or should I start rogaine now?
Thank you for posting your question. The best next option you have would be to either start on a regimen of Minoxidil 5% topical on to the crown, and second option is try to see if you can get a Rx from a clinic that can prescribe you Finesteride until your return back to the states. Thank you again, hope this helps.
Early hair loss
You have little to lose starting on 5% minoxidil twice daily. You can obtain it without prescription. Using it can often give your hair specialist some idea of what to recommend next.
The type of crown changes you are experiencing will be slow. Minoxidil will help but finaseride will possibly reverse it if you are under 30 years old
