DHT Sensativity / scalp burning

Hello everyone

I once took a hairloss medication called propecia approx 2.5 years ago. It is used to block DHT (dihydrotestosterone) in the blood from attcking the scalp and hair. DHT is derived from Testostorone in the blood. So in effect it is a hormone.

Anyway - After a month - I had stopped taking the propecia as it did not suit me. But as a result - the medication has made my scalp and hair very sensative to the DHT inmy blood and as a result - I am contantly feeling a burning and itching feeling in the areas where I am thinning. I know that it is due to the propecia as this side affect of burning and itching scalp is reported alot on the internet - althought the drug comany do not admit it.

So far - no body has found a way to counter-balance the damage that propecia has done using medicines.

Can someone tell me if I can try a homeopathic approach to removing the burning and itching which the drug has left behind.

The burning is really unbearable.

Please could someone help.
