Thanks for your query.

You are a male aged 24 years and the 'V' shaped hair loss that you describe is called as male pattern baldness.

It is normal for all men in this age. The extent may depend upon our family traits. It occurs due to the higher activity of androgen, the male hormone in this age.

This problem is not a serious concern if anemia and dandruff issues are ruled out. If these factors are not there you don't need to give any importance. If you are more concerned about this still, then consult your Dermatologist or Trichologist; he or she can run a battery of test and start treatment accordingly. As you are a unmarried and yet to produce your offspring certain types treatment may be not be recommended and I do not wish to start you on any treatment without the evaluation.

Your Dermatologist will help you more.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you need any further advices.

Be cheerful!

Dr. S. Murugan
