Hi Rick,
You seem to be having male patterned baldness. Kindly start with minoxidil 5% solution 1ml to be applied in morning and night. You can also start with tab finesteride 1mg one tab in night. These two drugs if taken regularly for 5 to 6 months help in replenishing the lost hair. Also there are other newer treatments available like scalp mesotherapy wherein minoxidil or platelet rich plasma or stem cell factors are injected in scalp through microneedles at regular intervals of say 0ne week to 15 days . Its a painless dermatologist guided technique yielding excellent results!
Take care

Hello Dear
Thanks for your query.

As you have got a family history of hair loss there is nothing abnormal that you are getting hair fall too .
You can apply minoxidil topically with some benifit.
But permanent cure will be in form of hair transplant.
Dont self medicate and always consult your doctor .

Besides have a healthy diet , plenty of fluids and have a stress free life.
Hope this helps.

Take care.
