hi,
welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for posting your query. I am happy to address your questions. vb7forte is an extra vitimin Bcomplex commonly prescribed as a nutritional supplement for patients with hairloss (not for growth of face hair) in addition to medical therapy for scalp hairloss treatment. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help. thanks

hi thanks for your kind response, there is minoxidil cream which can be administered under guidance of your dermatologist. You can continue vb7forte or biotin capsules which will provide nutritional support to hair growth. If you have no further clarifications, will request you to kindly close the query and rate it.

Thanks for your kind response, but if you need quick treatment will recommend you visit a dermatologist who will start hormonal medications as well. As it will need close monitoring and followup. If you have no further clarifications, will request you to kindly close the query and rate it. Thanks

Minoxidil could help you grow a beard, but this is never been shown in studies, nor is it FDA approved for facial hair. Applying minoxidil to your face would likely be irritating and can also cause acne. Biotin is a dietary supplement known to help with hair and nail growth. Consider taking 2.5 mg of biotin each day. You might find that growing a beard gives you an itchy, red, scaly rash on your face. Try using a little dandruff shampoo on your beard two or three times each week. You can also apply a mild over the counter steroid cream like hydrocortisone 1% once a day.If you have no further clarifications, will request you to kindly close the query and rate it. Thanks
