Brief Answer: You have male pattern baldness Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Welcome back. Thanks for the photograph. You are having hair loss mainly from the vertex and frontal scalp and less over the sides and back of scalp. This is a patterned hair fall seen in Male pattern baldness. There are US FDA approved treatments for it like topical minoxidil 5 % solution and Finasteride tablets. These are prescription medicines. Vitamin supplements like Biotin and calcium pantothenate along with minerals daily for 3 months will also help. One thing you should realize is this hair loss is in your genes. Whatever treatment you will be on will halt the process. Once treatment is stopped genes will take over. So we need to maintain the treatment on a long term. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any clarifications I will be happy to help. Take care.
