What Is The Cause And Treatment Hairfall And Baldness?

default
Posted on Mon, 3 Nov 2014
Question: Sir,
I have been suffering from hair thinning, hairfall and baldness problems for last couple of years. I had used mor -f solution and finastride tablets for sometimes (1month) and also used the juice of onion. I also use dandruff (Ketoconazole) shampoo along with other herbal shampoo. I have heard finastride has many side effects.
I also use hair colour ( Garnier / loreal) and XXXXXXX occasionally.
Recently one doctor has prescribed me hairbless tablet ( 1 tab per day) for 90 days.
Sir, I shall be grateful if you kindly advice me on curing hair thinning & baldness problems.

Brief Answer:
Take complete and continuous treatment

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I have seen the attached pictures .

You are basically suffering from male pattern hair loss. It is important for you to understand that this type of hair loss needs regular and long term treatment .
Minoxidil and finasteride are the mainstay of treatment which you have been taking earlier in the form of morr f and the tablets.

Since it is a firm of progressive hair loss, so we can atleast stop its further progression with proper treatment. We can also achieve back regrowth of certain lost hair.
So I would advise you to start intake of tablet finasteride once a day .
In addition ,apply minoxidil ten percent lotion one ml twice a day over the affected areas .
You will have to take this treatment regularly for atleast three months before we can expect to see good results.This is due to the normal hair growth cycle .
So it requires a lot of patience to follow the treatment regularly.

In my clinical experience ,finasteride is not known to cause any major side effects . Even if there are any ,they are reversible and tend to revert on stoppage of the drug.

So you can safely take the medicine .
