Hi Piyush,
You seem to be having male pattern baldness. Minoxidil solution will definitely help you. Use 5 percent solution 1 ml twice in a day over scalp. Continue the same at least for 4 to 5 months to notice good response. It' has been a month since you started using it, so you might have seen suboptimal response only. You can also take tablet finesteride 1 mg daily to speed up the hair growth in case if you do not get desirable response fom minoxidil alone. Hope that answers your query. Take care.
