Anti-androgens treat male hair loss by blocking DHT. DHT in male hair loss damages men's youthful hair folicles, forcing them to regress and shrink. There are hair folicles which act in the OPPOSITE fashion in the skin and are stimulated by androgens.Hi Tims1973, its great you found something, I am also aware of hormones playing a role in pore size as i find tht during my cycle i produce more oils together with the mood issues in excess and my skin tends to look terible during this period of time, I was even considering some kind of hormone medication to see if this will resolve this issue as it was not always like that only started like 8 months ago so my hormones must have developed a new pattern or something and I have also noticed some facial hairs too, I hav always been oily but not like it has been sine 8 months now.
But im curious if that ingredient you mentioned in your post is for hairloss wont it increase the growth of hairs expecially on the face?
2% Ketoconazole should really increase your chances of it shutting off the oil/sebum production in your pores. The first thing you will notice after about 2 weeks is that your skin is getting dry and that your skin is not as oily. I made sure I used a moisturizer at all times, day & night because this stuff will lower your skin oil production. I used some of the Ketoconazole shampoo on my shoulders also for any acne prevention. My shoulders started to get really dry, so I'm moisturizing that area too.I was actually prescribed the 2% strength, so maybe I should use less? Or will I maybe get results faster? Is there any burning or redness from using this?
Hi do u still use the shampoo?So, I am now researching other alternative creams that might provide more anti-adrogen effects in addition to Ketoconazole. I really hope this helps. I'm using a shampoo that is meant to treat men's hair loss, but the ingredients are working wonders for shrinking the pores on my face so far!
