Brief Answer:
Regarding hair fall

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You seem to have Androgenetic Alopecia. It is characterized by thinning, hair fall and receding anterior hair line. I suggest you to continue with Minoxidil 5% solution, 1ml, twice daily. In addition I suggest you to take oral Finasteride 1mg tablet (Finax) every night. You may use Sebamed Anti hair fall shampoo daily.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance
