Hi, I am currently a female teenager experience baldness. However, they are not precisely bald patches as they come in the form of a line. I have two or so of these lines. They occur at the back/side of my head and I've had these for quite a while (years). I do not want to undergo expensive treatments from companies such as XXXXXXX and XXXXXXX

From your description I understand that you have thinning and reduced density of scalp hair. Is that right?

If yes, please answer the following questions
1. Are your periods (menses) normal?
2. Do you have acne?
3. Do you have extra facial hair.

Please answer to these questions. I shall be able to give an accurate opinion then.

Waiting for your replies.

You may be correct about the hair thinning and reduced density of scalp hair.

1. Yes, pretty normal as I've never skipped or missed a month but it may come more frequently than usual (less than 28 days).
2. No, I do not have acne and never did.
3. No I do not have extra facial hair than an average female.

Thanks for the reply,
You are having Female pattern hair loss. Treatment takes longer time and the results are slow . Minoxidil use may help you.You may consult a dermatologist. Depending on the facilities get a videodermatoscopy done, to follow up the effect of treatment.
There are other things that can be done like mesotherapy. It helps to a certain extent.You may discuss these options with your doctor.

Hope I have answered your queries.
