TLDR Topical therapies show promise for hair loss and acne treatment with minimal side effects.
The article explores the effectiveness and safety of using topical antiandrogen therapies to treat androgenetic alopecia and acne vulgaris. The therapies include finasteride, ketoconazole shampoo, and cortexolone 17a-propionate (C17P). The authors found that these therapies are promising treatments for male pattern hair loss, especially when used with topical minoxidil. C17P also has potential in treating acne vulgaris in both males and females. Clinical trials have reported minimal adverse effects for all topical therapies. However, more research is needed to determine their effectiveness and safety, particularly in women.View this study on link.springer.com →
