I am a 20 year old female suffering from thinning hair. My dermatologist prescribed me fluocinonide topical solution 0.05% to calm my itchy dry scalp. This is my second day using fluocinonide and a lot of my hair sheds when I run my fingers through my hair.. Will castor oil help if I apply it after I apply fluocinonide on my scalp?
Stacey95; It sounds like the doctor is tying to heal your scalp with the medication which does work well. I would not add Castor oil or anything to the scalp you well dilute the medication. If its lots of hair falling out give your doctor a call and let them know also on this medication a few drops goes a long way you don't have to soak your hair into it. try and part your hair and add a few drops and lightly rub it in the dry scalp and such could be the reason you are losing hair.Good luck if your still not sure call your doctor. But try and be gentle on your hair.
I had very itchy scap and my doctor put me on the same medicine, and it stopped my scap from itching but my hair was still coming out by the hand fulls. Come to find out, my iron was much too low and had anemia. Even after taking iron for 20 years, i didn't get back my hair that I'd lost, and its still coming out. I was later diagnosed with alopecia, the male hair loss type.
