I was diagnosed telogen effluvium by a&nbsp; dermatologist on 21 september 2016. My hairloss started around 20 august 2016. I shedded for 7-10 days&nbsp; and then it stopped on its own. I was going through a rough time in my life so I realised it after a week that my hair is falling in excess amount. I went to a dermatologist who diagnosed it as TE. I was highly depressed about my hairloss at the time I went to the doctor. She gave me tugain 2% to use for 21 days. Tugain has 2% minodoxil w/v and 63% absolute alcohol v/v. The doctor did not tell me how to use it. I read the prescription which stated not to use more than one ml in single application. Since my hairloss was diffuse I wondered how to use just one ml on the entire scalp. This was my biggest mistake. I used the medicine for 7-8 days and within 7-8 days I finished two bottles each of 60 ml. I feel so dumb. I used it in huge amounts. I stopped using it after 7-8 days since it was causing dandruff flakes on my scalp. 12 days after stopping tugain I started to shed gain in huge amounts for 4-5 days. Within 4-5 days I lost about 15% of my hair density. I called the doctor who prescribed me tugain, she said that hairloss is temporary and stop using tugain and then continue again after some while. I could not say her much because it was my mistake as I did not read the prescription. <br> The base contained absolute alcohol which I read on the internet is a harmful agent. I am so scared right now. Have I killed my hairfollicles by using it excessively? It has been more than a month since I used the medicine and hairloss occurred, I am. Afraid my follicles were damaged hence my hair fell out and now they are destroyed by now.
