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?

My fiance is a 27 y/o male. He has knots that will come up sporatically on his fingers. He has also lost patches of his hair that has been diagnosed and alopecia. He has what looks to be a swollen lymph node behind his ear. He has been to many doctors who have ran blood work and he has also visited a dermatologist. He is very concerned that he has some underlying disease that the doctors are missing. I have to re-assure him daily that he will be ok. Please help me

I am taking Prograf 7 mg bid as I had a liver transplant on July 21/13. I was searching side effects of prograf and notice alopecia is one of them. I am losing more hair than normal and have noticed patchy spots on my scalp. Besides lowering the dose, any other recommendations for limiting hair loss?

I am 56. I was on Topamax (100 mgs bid) for about 8 months and began to experience excessive hair loss during hair washings. The hair is coming out at the root and thinning in a generalized fashion (no round bald spots). I dc'd the med early in Sept. but the hair loss continues. I would say I have currently lost close to 40% of my hair. My hair also seems to have stopped growing. My questions are 1) when will the abnormal hair loss discontinue and
2) when is regrowth likely? Thank you for your time
