"Thanks Ruth. Sorry to hear you were diagnosed with FFA. May I ask you What medication you are taking? I was thinking the same thing. Take an anti-biotic/anti-inflammatory and use Monat. I know it won't help regrow the hair I lost but may help…"
"I started using the IRT system from Monat almost two months ago. Unfortunately I got diagnosed with FFA a few weeks ago. So now I don't know what's happening because of what. I can tell you that I definitely had less hair falling out and…"
