Hello,
Welcome to healthcare magic,
From your description it looks like you have male pattern baldness. In males Minoxidil 5% solution 1 ml twice daily is the fda approved dose. So please start Hair 4 U 5 % solution 1 ml twice daily. You can also consider finasteride tablet 1 mg once daily. Kindly discuss about finasteride with your doctor.
Hope this helped,
Take care.
