Hello!
There are two aspects of your problem. Dandruff and hair loss. As you have correctly observed, the hair loss continues even when dandruff is controlled. This is because the two conditions are separate from each other and one is not the cause of another. The dandruff is a colonisation of scalp skin while hair loss occurs at hair root level below the skin surface.
You should control your dandruff by regular use of azole shampoo. For hair thinning, you can use medicines depending upon your diagnosis. For already thinned hair you may want to use stem cell therapy or topical therapy. Finally, lost hair can be replaced with transplantation once your hair loss has stabilised.

Hi,
Thanks for your query.
General measures to take- improve your diet with leafy vegetables, 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 an important role to play.
After proper diagnosis one 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. If baldness sets in, then one can go for hair transplantation also.

You please consult any good dermatologist, investigations to be done and drugs to be taken according to his advice.

Best wishes

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
If even after treatment of dandruff hair loss is present then you need to have regular iron supplements with a high protein diet to grow back your hairs. You can also apply raw egg on your scalp one hour before washing your hairs twice a week.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available if you have any further queries.
Regards

Dear Dr,           My name is Prasanth, 24 years old male from India. I have my sad story to tell about hair fall. I have been losing hair since I was 16 years. I have tried several treatments to control it. But nothing could cure it. In my family no one has such type of hair loss. I have high sebum production in my scalp and face. I have no pimples in my face. But in my scalp, I get slight yellowish/ whitish waxy balls and maybe it would be attached to the roots of each fallen hairs. It’s all over in my scalp. New born hairs also fall out like this. I am losing 150 hairs in a single day. What do I do? Will new hairs come back in the place of fallen hairs which had been lost because of excess sebum? Please explain dear doctor. I am so worried about that. Thanks

Hello! I am 35 years old woman and have been suffering from hairloss since i was 32. I have gone through a genetic test that showed that I haven t inherited androgenic alopecia and also nobody from my family is bold. I have no problems with the glands as I have been tested several times. Last year I had a standard operation for removal of a benign tumor in my uterus called mioma but my hairloss had started 2 years before that. And my female organs are still intact. I live and work in a foreign country and I sometimes think my problem might be caused by stress. What I know for sure is that this has been driving me crazy for along time now and is my biggest fear and the more I think about it the worse it gets. I have recently broken up with my boyfriend and the main reason is that I can t stand myself the way I am now. I know that this problem can ruin my whole life... Recently I have started thinking that the only think I can do is committing a suicide which I know is a crazy thought. But seems like the only possible outcome if that problem persists. I also don t think I suffer from depression because when I have my so called good days with my hair I am absolutely fine and feel happy and all in the world is good. One more thing: I have had constipation for the past 20 years and started taking herbal medicines 15 years ago. I simply can t live without taking them. Recently read that there are some microorganisms in the stomach that might cause hairloss if they more that normal. Really don t know what to think. According to all my blood tests I am fine, my glands including the thyroid are all functioning normally. And just recently I have the feeling my scalp itches but that has never been the case before and it also might be psychological (psychosomatic ). Please help me!!! Thank u!!!
