Hello..Thanks for your query
From the above presentation and treatment i assume the diagnosis made is of Androgenetic pattern hair loss.Two medications are approved to treat male pattern baldness:
1)Minoxidil: is a solution that you apply directly to the scalp to stimulate the hair follicles. It slows hair loss for many men, and some men grow new hair. Hair loss returns when you stop using this medicine.
2)Finasteride: is a pill that interferes with the production of a certain male hormone linked to baldness. It slows hair loss. Hair loss returns when you stop using this medicine.
what you have to understand that a genetic pattern hair-loss will never have a complete cure.There are a number of other therapies available too, however none of them have been proved to be effective or are FDA approved. Ketoconazole shampoo is frequently used as an adjunct to other hair loss treatments. It is a mild anti-androgen that may possibly block DHT (the hormone that causes hair loss) at the scalp. The shampoo itself also helps maintain a healthy scalp, which is important when treating hair loss.
Most importantly , any of the above should be started after examination and prescription by a dermatologist.It is unwise to start or continue treatment without supervision because these treatments are long term and require months- years of therapy to be effective.
Hope this helps..Take care!
