Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,

I would not recommend you any self medications .Its better that you consult a dermatologist .Since hair loss in females is multi-factorial so its better that a dermatologist analyses you properly. And its always good that you take one form of medication i.e.allopathy or homeopathy (try not to mix two).

In females the most common cause of hair loss is –iron deficiency, hormonal imbalance, thyroid problem, stress, lack of sleep, familial ,or use of chemical on scalp ,procedures like perming or straightening etc. Other rare causes are zn & copper def. One has to find the exact cause of hair loss and treat. In females there are various patterns of hair loss,which can be judged clinically by a dermatologist. As you have mentioned its the frontal area getting involved that would mean a hormonal patter of hair loss. You should get your hormonal level checked along with an ultra sound if necessary to rule out PCOD.This usually seen in obese patient with irregular periods and pimples on face.
Other simple test which we do are hair pull test and trichogram to diagnose which type of hair loss is there. After proper diagnosis you can start with topical preparations like Minoxidil 2%-5% applied twice daily on scalp along with tab biotin one daily.Other hormonal medicines are also available if needed. Improve your diet with green leafy veg, fresh fruits, plenty of water, sprouts ,pulses, high protein diet, avoid items with high sugar content like sweets & chocolates, less of Chinese foods, less of pizza & burgers ,more of milk & ghee, dry fruits . Good sleep also has a important role to play .

Hope this answers your query ,if you have any further questions ,kindly write back to us.

Take care,

Thinning of Hair on the right side and Hair Fall ( Premature Balding). Hi, I am a 21 year old MALE student Suffering from a peculiar hairloss problem. I am a right-hander. As a college student staying away from home my sleep routine are inconsistent. I have the habit of applying hair oil every alternate day. My scalp is clean and free from dandruff but, the hair pattern above my right ear is very thin (becoming) and hair fall is more prominent here. But, Onto my left portion of the scalp and the top portion of the scalp my hair density is good and hair fall is considerably less. After consulting a doctor i was suggested to use 1 ml of TUGAIN Solution 5 Minoxidil Topical sol USP 5 w/v) daily. I have 2 queries 1.) As a doctor what would u suggest me ? 2.) Can both hair oil and Tugain be applied together, (if not atleast on the different portions of the scalp as 1ml is not sufficient for the entire scalp.)? Thank you.

I have been experiencing this type of hair loss for 9 months now. Blood tests for Iron deficiency and thyroid are normal. I have undergone treatment from a dermatologist which included monthly visits for Kenalog injections and use Clobetesal nightly. I did not have an appointment this month as the thought was it may be my last affected area. Now I have 5 bald patches ranging in size from a nickel to half-dollar. It is thought that it is due to emotional stress as my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer last January and these spots started to appear the following March. My husband is undergoing chemo with little to not side effects and the treatment will add years to his life, so one would think I would no longer be stressed, I am grateful for that. I just don't know why these are still appearing and should I consider another method of treatment. I plan to schedule another appointment with my dermatologist and I am not sure what to ask for. Could you give me some alternative choices that I may be able to ask him about? I appreciate you being there. Thank you. Claudia Crowe
