Regarding hair loss
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I don't think your hair loss is the result of using hair XXXXXXX You seem to have either androgenetic alopecia or frontal fibrosing alopecia. Both of these entities present with hair loss from the frontal scalp. Hair loss is gradual and progressive. Some patients may also complain of associated scalp pain i.e trichodynia, but the underlying cause is presumed to be psychological as there is often stress, anxiety associated with hair loss. I suggest you to use minoxidil 5% solution, 1ml, twice daily on the affected scalp. In addition I suggest you to take oral finasteride 2.5 -5 mg once a day. Treatment is long term and it may take 3- 6 months for noticeable improvement. For scalp pain I usually ask my patient to take Pregabalin 75mg, twice daily for a few weeks and if that isn't helpful I ask them to seek psychiatric consultation for underlying stress, anxiety associated with hair loss.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance.
