Hi and welcome to HCM.
Frontal baldness is typically the first noticeable indication of thinning. It is generally the first stage in male pattern baldness
. While numerous treatments claim to stop or slow frontal baldness, there are only two treatments that are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Dermatologists believe in application of Minoxidil
lotion. It is one product which is unanimously used by all dermatologists. It is to be started with 2% lotion applied over the scalp
once or twice in day. It is to be applied when the scalp is dry. Only 1 ml is sufficient to be applied at the root of hair in frontal region. If for one month there is no burning and irritation then we increase the percentage to 5 % to 10% gradually. The same we do to taper off the medicine. That means we do not stop the medicine at once and gradually taper it off to 5% and then 2% and then alternate day or off and application of lotion before stopping it completely. For frontal baldness also you can use minoxidil lotion.Finasteride
is given along with this topical application to reduce the effect of male hormones. If you are unmarried or sexually inactive male then there is no problem in taking this medicine but if you are sexually active then it can reduce your libido temporarily. But i suggest you to take these medications under dermatologist guidance.
A nutritional supplement containing Biotin
and mutiple other nutrients would be a good option to take on daily basis. Eat a lot of fruits, sprouts and green leafy vegetables daily. Stop smoking
and alcohol consumption. All the best
