Brief Answer:
Male pattern hair loss,take treatment

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I understand your concern regarding your skin problem and I hope I am able to help you in the same.
I have seen the attached pictures .
You seem to have developed male pattern hair loss .But the good thing is that the hair loss is still in the early stages and might recover with treatment.
Apply minoxidil 10 percent lotion over the affected areas of scalp twice daily .Foligain contains 5 percent solution ,I would recommend a 10 percent lotion in your case.
Take tablet biotin 10 mg daily .
Follow the above treatment regularly for atleast six months .You might even have to continue treatment for a longer time for good results.

Hope it helps

Brief Answer:
Long term treatment required

Detailed Answer:
Hi again

Minoxidil is the treatment of choice at present for this type of hair loss.
It has to be used for a long time and in some patients ,it has to be used for years together to maintain the hair growth .
Since male pattern hair loss is related to hormone receptors ,so some degree of hair fall can occur again on stopping treatment .So you need to make up your mind that you might need continuous long term treatment for the same .
