Unfortunately, we women can suffer from AGA just like men. A dermatologist who specializes in hair loss should be able to use a special camera that looks for miniaturized hairs. Miniaturization usually means AGA. They may be willing to prescribe you finasteride, although it's unlikely insurance would cover it and there's not a lot of evidence that it works well in women. The standard treatment for AGA in women is minoxidil (the 5% is almost always recommended over the 2% targeted at women - if you grow a little facial hair from the 5%, it's no big deal - it can be waxed right off
I learned the hard way that the other treatment usually recommended for women with AGA, spironalactone, is NOT a good idea for those of us with SjS. Spiro is a diruetic that has anti-androgenic properties, and even though I told my derm. I had SjS, she didn't think it would cause any problems for me....not sure what planet she's living on
To treat my hair loss, right now I'm just using the Rogaine Foam at night. The SjS may also be playing a part in my hair loss.
I expect that by the time I hit menopause, I will be as bald as my husband
Of course, your thyroid problems could definitely be causing your hair loss too, so perhaps finding a doctor willing to treat your thyroid problems better will help.
Best of luck!
