  • Hair loss from installations?

    Hi Ladies, for the last year, I have been getting rescue installations on an as needed basis, no oral Elmiron. Mine are heparin Marcaine and Kenalog. They have worked great, but in the last two months or so, I've lost a significant amount of hair. I just recently read online that Kenalog can cause hair loss, so I'm going to be eliminating that from the install. My question is, has anyone had hair loss from just doing installs with heparin ( and you don't take Elmiron)? I'm just trying to isolate what might be causing the hair loss. I really want to continue with the installs but the hair loss is making me so stressed out and sad. Thanks, Julie

    Oh noooooo..... I wonder if it's the stress making your hair fall out rather than the installs? I didn't know topical solution application could get into your system like that? Does anyone here know?
    I can imagine it would make you feel awful. So sorry.
    Have you got anything else going on that you can think of? Diet wise, nutrition, supplements?

      I'm really hoping it's the Kenalog as I can just cut that out. Thanks for your response!

        I suggest you talk to your doctor about a substitute for the Kenalog.

        Stay safe
