Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for your query.

Genetic hair loss begins in the 20s and 30s. For this condition, medicines that are prescribed can affect the male hormones. The usual medicines prescribed are minoxidil and finasteride. These are both available for oral consumption. Minoxidil is also available as lotion, in which case it may not affect the hormones. The affect may be lost when you discontinue the medicine.

If you are sure that it is genetic, then minoxidil 5% lotion to be applied at the bald area will be helpful. Biotin tablets are also recommended.

These medicines are to be taken under supervision of a dermatologist. Thus I will recommend that you see a dermatologist.
