"I do have breast tenderness from the Dutasteride.  Nothing else I've noticed.  I use topical Rogaine with no problems.  Just don't go over the recommended half a capful."

MAKEUP WITHOUT SPF/SUNSCREEN?

I am convinced sunscreen is partially the problem with my FFA diagnosis.  I have religiously warn it in my moisturizer, and foundation makeup for many years.  I just went without it for over two weeks (no makeup) and I am already feeling prickly new hairs growing along my hairline.I have easily found skincare without sunscreen/spf, but I cannot find a quality foundation that has decent coverage for my makeup.What have you all found?See More

Has anyone ever used the drug Lexapro?  I wonder if this caused my FFA.  I also used sunscreen daily for over 20 years and now use mineral sunscreen that I check with EWG ratings.  I feel I need the antidepressant more than ever.  As for my eyebrows I got permanent cosmetic procedure and it was the best thing I did.  I can actually look at myself in a mirror without getting so depressed.
