How should male baldness pattern with forehead boils be treated?

I'm 28 year old and suffering from male baldness pattern. I started using RICHFEEL tricology centre's saw palmetto treatment but it didn't help, then I tried Minoxidil 5% but discontinued it after 12 days after having some side effects (some tiny boils on my forehead). Kindly suggest me which medicine i should take.

You may stop it for a few days. Take oral treatment like tab finasteride 1 mg daily with tab biotin 10 mg thrice a day. Cleanse the scalp with ketoconazole shampoo daily. After a few days you may restart the minoxidil. Tiny boils may be folliculitis. Take a course of antibiotic like cap Doxycycline. Avoid stress and worries. Continue treatment for long time to get good result in androgenetic alopecia.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
