its due to hormonal effect

no one can treat it permanent.
apply minoxidil 5% lotion once at night
take tab biotin once a day
eat high protein diet
it will take 2 month to start result.

Dermatologist Dr. Bharat Chawda's  Response
Hi! Shivaprasad,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,
You have two things here,one is andriogenetic alopecia and other is dandruff.
Since you have hair line recessions from front ,let me tell you that the hair which you have already lost from the front (where baldness has occurred ),you cannot regain it by any form of medicines .The only answer is hair transplantation.
But to prevent further hair loss ,you can take medicines.I prefer combination of medicines like minoxidil,fenestride,biotin,essential fatty acids,zinc,copper etc. They need to be taken for at-least 6 -8 months for good result.By these medicines one can only delay baldness,you cannot treat it. If you take these medicines for say 1 year then probably you can prevent baldness by 4-5 years (vary from patient to patient).
Dandruff is not a disease .So you should try keep it under control using various shampoos .If sever then there are tablets or lotions to control it.Biotin is a vitamin which helps build up keratin present in hair shaft.
So,consult a skin specialist who can help you with a good treatment.

regards,
Dr.chawda

What are possible causes of body hair loss? Hair lost in the armpits, arms and legs. balding as well...but, that had been going on previously. Had an episode of reduced pulse rate with lightheadedness and nausea/vomiting. House has been checked for Radon gas and levels were high. I am thinking thyroid as a result of radioactive exposure. Is that reasonable and are there other possible scenarios.
