Brief Answer:
You may be having Androgenetic alopecia.

Detailed Answer:
Hai,
Thanks for posting your query to XXXXXXX
You seem to have Androgenetic alopecia grade II.
You need to apply 5% minoxidil 20 drops both morning and at night at areas where you seem to be loosing hair.You have to apply this medication after three hours of any oil application.
Along with this you can also take Tab. Biotin 5 mg at night as a supportive vitamin.
You will regain your hair in three months and hair fall will be stopped.
Have a good day
