Brief Answer: you might be having male pattern baldness. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for writing to us. From the description provided, you could be having male pattern baldness. It is characterised by hair loss from front, sifes and centre of scalp. In my opinuon, you may apply minoxidil 5 percent 1 ml twice in a day and take a an oral hair supplement like androanagen daily. It contains vitamins, minerals and aminoacids good for hair growth. As you have an oily scalp, use ketoconazole salicylic acid based shampoo every alternate days. Usually the above prescription should be followed for three to four months to see response. Hope this helped. Take care

Brief Answer: these medicines are safe to use. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX These medicines are quite safe to use. Minoxidil at times causes little bit or irritation or itching over scalp but thats not commonly seen. You can get these medicines at any good medical store. I have already suggested some common brands that are easily available. Hope this helped.
