  • Beard stopped to grow normally

    Some parts of beard stopped to grow normally.Also,on all other parts of body where I lost hair after chemo.It's just rare hair now on specific parts,but it still grows.
    What could it be,hormons maybe ?
    It passed 7 months since chemo,no problems till now.
    It doesn't make me big problems,but it is funny to see.

      Others have reported various hair issues. It's not super common, but it happens. Probably wouln't be a bad ideato check hormones, but normally there doesn't seem to much thatcan be done.
