Hi Sanju,

Thanks for writing in.
The condition you are suffering is Androgenetic Alopecia .
It is a Hormonal condition.

Treatment can be minoxidil,finasteride.

Minoxidil and finasteride in topical form are very safe and effective. If you get itching by using lotion you can try gel formulations.Finasteride orally can cause some loss of libido and decrease sexual activity but it is temporary.It gets normalised on continuing treatment.


Few procedures like mesotherapy and light therapy can be helpful.
They are available at dermatology clinics.

Also supportive oral tablets containing biotin and multivitamis can be helpful.
Please consult a good dermatologist for specific treatment.

Hair transplantation is Ideal for very extensive hair loss.Cost can be from 1-3 lakhs.DHI is a good hair transplant centre.
Its better to take early treatment than to regret later.
Hope this helps.

Regards
