I have now learned that the sudden back acne never before seen has coincided with the onset of some hairloss. This occurred because I did not want to lose my gains from a prednisone cycle I had to hop on, previously I have lost as much as 60 lbs on prednisone.
I zoomed the T injections into the stratosphere when I no longer felt the effect, which prednisone was cancelling out. I realized it was futile and stopped that experiment. However I now understand where my first every back/shoulder breakout of acne came from when a balding co-worker pointed out that at 46 I had pretty thick hair. Well I tugged on the hairline and the crown OH MY strands came out !!!
I now understand both symptoms are caused by DHT. That wave of excess DHT is subsiding as the acne is disappearing however DHT gets trapped ( forever ? ) in the hair follicle so the question is what do I do now ? Dad and grandpa had the normal receding hair line, an ever deepening M and I see some saying on cycle ‘shedding’ will reverse in cases where ‘baldness’ is not expected.
What can I do to flush out the existing DHT and does Stinging Nettle help or hurt the hair ? I see arguements going both ways, I think its great for boosting free T but pretty hard to tell if it is helping or hurting with embedded DHT. I started using it about the same time so it is hard to tell.
