Dermatologist Dr. Bharat Chawda's  Response

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

You can use either 5% or 10% solution of minoxidil over scalp daily.After a month or so you can shift over to 2% for maintainance .This has to be used for atleast 8-10 months further.
Biotin comes in two strength 5mg & can use either of them .
These medicines take at least 2 months to work and show their response.Before that you may not see any response.
Apart from this you can go for mesohair injection and lasers for hair growth which are available with few cosmetic clinics.These all would work only if you have fine hair on scalp.
We at Apollo hospital ,bhilai,run a hair institute where in we have all these above facilities for our patients.For those who have lost their hair and have become bald we do surgical & non surgical hair restoration procedures.Hair transplantation is a permanent method for getting back your original hair.
You can get details from website to dermatology section) or construction).
