u need to be seen as to what amount of hair loss u have and grade it. u need to start minoxidil solution 5% , 1 ml to be applied twice a day.u ll have to use it as drops to be applied overthe balding area. the effects will take some time to be seen, that is approximately 4 months, but u need to use it continuously.there are other medications that also need to be started but cant be started until certain blood investigations are done.
