hi..thanks for your query

Hair loss is a chronic condition.It is usually 3-6 months for you to see nay new regrowth.You are using one of the few medications which is very effective on hair loss.So , continue the same.Hair loss will return if you stop it.
You can use hair oil..Use medicated oils like Juenne on scalp,taking care that you do not oil too much and do not use Mintop and oil at the same time.
You can shampoo your hair as well .You can use Ketoconazole 2% shampoo as they help in hair loss.
You can continue to use candid TV lotion .This should not cause any damage, if it was prescribed by your dermatologist
Hope this helps.Take care!

Hye! You are having male pattern baldness. Keep the hairs cut 0 or 1 no. , ok. Take tab finesteride 1 mg daily once in morning. Tab biotin 10 mg daily at night. Apply minoxidil 5 percent twice day. Do shampoo daily with candid tv shampoo. Keep patience... Have faith. You will start to get result after 6 months. Continue the treatment till you get good result ... Best wishes.
