Minoxidil solution

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Its very common for males to loose hairs in teenage. This is due to hormonal influence.

Ask him to apply MINOXIDIL 5% solution to be applied to his scalp every alternate day for a two months . This improves the blood circulation to the scalp and reduce the hair fall.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

Brief Answer:
Get thyroid hormone checked

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

If he is loosing body hair too then there is need for complete evaluation of his hormonal status. Do get his thyroid hormone and testosterone levels checked.

Also, do consult a dermatologist for a skin biopsy of the scalp to be done. This helps to rule out any infective or inflammatory causes for hair loss.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
