Hello. I have dryness and fat loss in the face, eyes and eye sockets after using a 5ar inhibitor drug for years. It's a popular one for hair loss. I lost face fat and fat in the eye sockets after I started. My face, eyes and tissues around the eyes are very dry and inflamed literally affecting vision.
Example: the moment start using my eyes in the morning I get dryness, inflammation and a feeling of pressure in the nasal passages, sinuses and eyes themselves. But when I get a cold all of that is watery, hydrated, swollen and my vision is near 20/20 until the cold is gone! No kidding.
I'm looking for ideas and solutions I take zinc and nettle root powder which are both 5ar inhibitors but have many benefits. Information about whether they'd cause these symptoms is sketchy at best. The biggest side effects of taking 5ar blocker drugs is low libido and erectile dysfunction which I don't have so I'm confused. I stopped taking it a year ago. Normally these side effects are permanent but the biggest ones went pretty quick.
I'm looking for ideas and solutions.
