Hair loss, taking Minoxidil and Finasteride. Will Monistat help me?

Hello Dr., I am 30 years old male and have been loosing hair for 10 years. I dint bother too much about it initially but since last 3 years I have started taking some precautions. I started using finistride and minoxdile for 1 years but stopped finistride completely realising its side effects. I have using minoxdile 5% lotion and gel. I am also very careful about the shampoo that I use. I never comb my hair when they are wet nor do I rub them too hard. Some one told me about monistat 7 (antifungal cream) which increases the length of the hair very quickly. Please advise if monistat will help me. Hope to hear from you soon

Thanks for the query.

If you have dandruff this cream might help you.

In case of just hair fall it has no role to play.

Its good that you are using finasteride and minoxidil.

This will surely help you.

Any hair fall therapy needs around 3 months to show result,

so have patience.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
