i have been on anti biotics. Doxycycline 100mg BID for 2 weeks and have been on antifungal shampoo.
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago
if hair loss, then most likely fungal and will need to use shampoo for 4 weeks. If not improved, then follow up with your doctor and ask about antifungal pills.Does that help?
