My hair is thinning and I have a bald spot that recently appeared. Prior to some hair loss my scalp has been irritated whenever I touched my hair. This concerns the recent lawsuit involving Johnson & Johnson.

There wasn't a question here, but if you're wondering if this creates the basis for a lawsuit, it would depend on damages. A court would look at what you suffered in terms of damages by taking one less pill as a standard dosage. Based on these brief facts, I don't see it as a case...Read more »
