Brief Answer:
Minoxidil 5 percent lotion and hair supplements

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have reviewed the attached reports and photographs.
You have decreased hair density at places but it is basically guarded by certain genetic factors.
It is possible that your family members don't have expressed this genetic change but it is expressed in your case.
Your blood reports are fine.
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to apply minoxidil 5 percent lotion on the affected areas twice daily for 4-6 months and take hair supplements containing biotin and calcium pantothenate for 4-6 months.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
