How to cure from hair loss due to dandruff ?

Hi! My age is 20,female. When I was 14, I had considerable hair loss due to dandruff I guess. Since then I have less hair on the upper part of my head . My hairs don t fall now but I have noticed that there are small hairs on the upper head but they are not growing. I mean, I have seen these small hairs since 2-3 years. I have some white hairs too. Please suggest me something to get my hairs back. I have 12% hb

Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If there is no dandruff and your hairs don't fall then to get thick hairs you can apply or massage with castor oil twice a week;take diet rich in proteins;also you can take some multivitamins along with healthy diet.It will take some time but surely the volume will increase.
Thanks

My daughter has been loosing her hair, and it has gotten quite bad recently. She has bald spots on the top of her head and itching and what she calls dandruff. When she was approx 12 yrs old this started with three small spots on top of her head. The derm. gave her an array of creams any ointments, which did nothing. They & said she was positive (I have Lupus SLE). Her father did not believe this and she never returned. The spots stayed approx the size of your finger print with minimal amt of hair for years. Now she is 25 and she is thinning more and mor every day & spots are getting worse. Gone to 3 Derm. and no one can find a cause. Tested negative for Lupus in blood test

Hello. My 25 yo son has lost his eyebrows, about 1/3 of the hair on his head and several patches all over his body. His dermatologist put him on steroids for 2 weeks and rogaine. Told him he would have to see another doctor for anything else. All his blood work looked normal. He is otherwise very healthy. Should I take him to an endocrinologist, another dermatologist, or a rheumatologist? I read good things about taking hydoxychloroquine.

Hello Dr.I am hiv+ but that is very much under control. The alopecia areatta began before my diagnosis and even with treatment of the hiv and cortisone shots, there is very little improvement. Rogaine helped my eyebrows but made my head hair worse. Do you have any recommendations?
