» I am going to try oral non-drowsy antihistamines for a month and see what
I dont really believe this would work, but if you are going to do it, they give examples of how they intend for it to be used. From the patent:
The powder from twelve 500 mg. penicillin tablets was combined with two 50
mg. ampules of injectable Benadryl™. Added thereto was about a 21/2" to
3" squirt of Rugby Hydroskin™ and a few drops of Bactine™ until the
mixture was thinner than honey.
This composition was then rubbed into a clean scalp at night and removed
each morning for eight days. Within eight weeks hair growth was observed.
A patient suffered a fungus infection under his toenails which had ridged
them up to a considerable extent. On a clean toenail three applications of
the composition of Example I brought back the pink skin under the nail.
All of the white was gone.
To a patient suffering from scar tissue behind his ear was subjected to
repeated applications of the composition of Example I. Over an extended
period of about three months, all of the scar tissue but one wrinkle and
all of the effected flesh but one dot were gone.
I skimmed the patent, and basically their position is that bacterial infections lead to an immune response that keeps the hairs miniaturized. The only problem with this are hair transplants, which grow up front years and years after implantation in the same area. Cedarwood oil is supposedly super for killing little microbials------one might be able to try that since it has been associated (Scottish Essential Oils study with Alopecia Areata in Archives of Dermatolgoy) of several cases of regrowth. The oils used were Cedarwood, Lavender, Thyme, and Rosemary. They are all alchohol soluble.
I hope you do try it though HairKing. I’d give it the eight weeks that the patent CLAIMS that some regrowth was seen though, and not a mere month. Ten weeks would be better. Using exactly what the patent says would be the best thing to do. I dont know if taking anti-histamines when you dont need them internally can do any long term damage to the liver or lungs, but you might want to take a look into that just to be sure. Good luck though. If you get some “wow” regrowth up there, we all owe you bottle of your favorite beverage.
