Dear customer,

The hair fall is mostly herediatary and nothing much can be done if it is due to herediatary cause.Though the use of mintop solution may prevent further hair fall in some cases but growing of hairs from completely bald area is controversial.You may try and continue mintop solution and if that helps may continue it .

The androgen antagonist drugs may also be helpful though it have the side effects of causing low testosterone levels and decreased libido.You should consult the endocrinologist for this and only after taking benefit and risk ratio you should use it.

You should also have the dermatologist examination done to rule out any infectious cause as the fungal infection may also cause hair loss and should be treated accordingly.

Thank you

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. Hair loss is an universal problem with varied aetiology. Hair loss at this age suggests a disease like typhoid educationald ofcourse stress, malnutrition , mal absorption, anaemia, genetic, etc. So i advise you to consult a dermatologist or a trichologist for diagnosis and treatment.
Minoxidil is a good drug especially for male type alopecia, and of course in other types of alopecia also. But should confirm the type of alopecia by a doctor.
Besides i advise you to some non medical procedures like diversion procedures as yoga meditation reading books and hearing music to avoid unknown tension.
Also follow some diet recomendations as take more of green leafy vegetables pulses, sprouts, milk, egg, meat, sea foods, fruits and juices.
Wishing for a beautiful recovery and thanks for calling.
