Brief Answer:
Answer few questions, upload pictures

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
I am Dr Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, a dermatologist.
There are many causes of hair loss and treatment depends on the cause.
The common causes encountered by me are male pattern baldness, anemia, chronic diseases including that of the scalp, thyroid disorders, past history of fevers like typhoid and malaria, certain medications, surgery, trauma and accidents.
I would recommend you to exclude anemia and thyroid disorders by going for haemoglobin, serum ferritin levels and thyroid function tests.
Moreover I would recommend you to upload the photographs of your scalp so that I can ascertain the pattern of your hair loss and can guide you accordingly.
I have reviewed your uploaded prescription and diagnosis of male pattern baldness has been made by the doctor.
For how long have you used hair 4U lotion and these tablets?
Did you notice any improvement after using these?
Kindly revert with the answers and the photographs.
