First you need to check hair fall is due to baldness or some other reason. If it is male pattern baldness wich is hereditary, you can go for hair transplantation. There is no other proper treatment for that. First consult a good trichologist. Then he can decide the cource of treatment.

The only 2 medicine that is proved to be helpfull are

1. Monoxidil (Mintop) -> topical use

2. Finipecia which is a hormon inhibitor which will temporarily inhibts effect of your male hormon.

So doing a hair transplantion and using these two medicine will solve your problem. Hair transplant may cost rs 20-30/hair. You may need 1000 - 2000 transplants

you are the right candidate to undergo hair transplant. before that you confirm the cause for the hair fall at this age. and than proceed. because the hair transplant is very costly procedure, if these transplant also fall and you become bald it will not be desirable.find out the cause and whether the cause will affect the transplant hair

Just check for side effects for finepecia before starting the medicine. The cost of transplantation is half the cost quoted above..

Hello sir, I am a boy of 18 years and am suffering from hair-loss. I have been using tugain 5 percent foam for the past 3 and a half months but haven t seen any improvements as yet. I still continue to shed a lot of hair everyday. I intend to continue to use tugain for another 4 months, after which, I planned on undergoing a hair transplantation treatment to get my lost hair back. Is this a good idea? Is there an age limit for hair transplantation treatment? P.S I have been using tugain 5 percent foam and follihair tablets along with shampooing with Anaphase.

I have debilitating migraines with loss of vision, abdominal issues, extreme exhaustion and malaise, high blood pressure, photosensitivity, problems in my ear canals and have had alopecia in the past. I have been tested for lupus. Some of the results that came back were - positive ANA, increased inflammation, and blood clotting problems including Factor V and protein C. The doctor said I do not have lupus even though I have read that these are all signs of lupus. How did he determine this. Are there other tests he based his findings on because when I asked I didn t really understand him and even though I don t want to have lupus, I need to figure out what is going on with my body because all of this has been going on for over a year now and no one seems to be able to help me. Can you explain what other tests are generally used to test and diagnos lupus ?
