My doctor has prescrbed 5-fluorouracil solution for my scalp twice per day for two weeks. I am a female with thin hair. I don't want to lose anymore. Does anyone have experience with this?
I have done some research and a very rare possible side effect is alopecia. Now I did more research and I found a reliable source where it says "TEMPORARY hair loss", I believe that while you are using this medication you will be exposed to hair loss or alopecia, once you have finished treatment it will hopefully stop.
I have just been given this for my scalp and I have thin hair as well. How did it work for you? Did you lose hair?
