Hair Loss/PLZ help me!!! In problem urgent


I am a 22yr old male.At the age of 18 i started having hairfall.So by age 20 my crown,mid scalp & front region were effected with thinning & hairfall.I went to several doc they said i have MPB and gave me some medicine.But as my thinning hair were being exposed.I decided to wear a natural french wig.The wig was wear on top with sides & back scalp region hair mine to give it natural look.So the wig cover the crown,mid,front scalp area.THE sides & back are my natural hair.At from age 17 i started facing acne.At 21 it got severe so i went to doc and he gave me a roaccutane course for 6 months.My acne clear up in 2 months but i had to complete the course.But the doctor & many websites said that roaccutane cause hairfall.I know it cause hairfall but my concern & question is

that the roaccutane side effect of hairfall & thinning is affected on crown,mid,front scalp only or it also effects the sides & back scalp region(donor area) as well.The doctor who gave me roaccutane,i asked him if this will cause hairfall from my side & back donor area hair region.HE said no.Doctor said roaccutane only causes hairfall from top/mid scalp & crown/front scalp and does not effect the sides,back & donor area.!!!!!!

So i want to know from you that if i lose from top scalp its ok as long as my acne is being treated but if i lose/or thinning from sides & back hair would bother me as i wear a wig and side & back hair in good density are important for natural look???????

This acne medication can cause diffuse hair loss (from all over the scalp.) The hair loss would not be limited to certain areas.
There are several reasons these types of acne medications can cause hair loss. Certain acne medications are made from a derivative of Vitamin A. Vitamin A, being a fat-soluble vitamin, gets stored in the body. An excess can cause toxicity. Hair loss is a well-known symptom of vitamin A toxicity. Another reason this medication can cause hair loss is that it may interfere with biotin. Biotin is necessary for healthy hair growth. Also, this medication shrinks the sebaceous glands. This is great for acne, but not so good for hair. Without adequate sebum, hair can become dry, weak, fragile and prone to breakage. If you do a web search you will find that hair loss due to (vitamin A based) acne medication is common. Please let me know if I can help you further.

Female hair loss is my main focus. Women today are very susceptible to several types of hair loss including telogen effluvium, alopecia areata, and androgenetic alopecia. I can answer questions about the causes and types of female hair loss. I can share information about natural holistic remedies to improve female hair loss conditions.


My interest in female hair loss sprung from my own experience with extensive hair loss. Determined to grow my hair back, I diligently studied every piece of information I could find on the biology of hair growth. After successfully re-growing my hair with safe and effective natural products, I felt compelled to learn more and to share this information with other women. I am experienced in blending custom hair loss formulas. I am also experienced in writing about female hair loss issues.

My hair loss information has been included in The Truth about Womens Hair Loss by Spencer Kobren, Naturally Healthy Skin by Stephanie Tourles, Alternative Healing by Bill Gottleib and Natural Health Magazine. I am the author of several books on hair loss.

I am a certified aromatherapist specializing in formulas for scalp and hair conditions.
