Hi,thanks for query.You need to first diagnose the condition first.After that if any local problem like infection is there you need to apply specific drugs for it.Some times some vitamin deficiency or stress may be the reason.Please see a doctor who will help.bye.

Hi!,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,

You probably are suffering from ANDROGENTIC ALOPECIA,common type of patterned hair loss.This is a familial condition where in one gradually looses frontal hair .
I would like to share with you that if your family members also have the same patter (esp your father) then ,there is very high chance that you would also get the same pattern.And there is no permanent cure for this except surgery.But with proper medication you can delay the process of baldness may be by few years.

You can first try minoxidil sol 5% or 10% topically directly applied to scalp.Along with this there are medicines like finestride 1 mg & biotin which are help ful .Before taking this you should be under a regular guidance of a dermatologist .These are very effective medicine but has to be taken for long time.Apart from this there are lasers for hair growth (FDA APPROVED) which needs to be taken for initial 2 months .It has amazing results.Then there is MESO-THERAPY which are tiny injections which are directly given on the scalp for growth.

In case you have already lost hair and are suffering from baldness then you can go for hair transplantation. You can get details in my website www.skinhairclinic.com (under construction) & www.apollobsr.com (dermatology section) .We also have a hair institute running in apollo hospital,bhilai(cg). We do all above procedures and we also do l asers and meso injection along with hair transplantation.

Improve your diet with green leafy veg, fresh fruits, plenty of water, pulses, high protein diet, avoid items with high sugar content like sweets & chocolates, less of Chinese foods, less of pizza & burgers ,more of milk & ghee, dry fruits . Good sleep also has a important role to play .

Take care,
Dr.Bharat Chawda

I have been experiencing this type of hair loss for 9 months now. Blood tests for Iron deficiency and thyroid are normal. I have undergone treatment from a dermatologist which included monthly visits for Kenalog injections and use Clobetesal nightly. I did not have an appointment this month as the thought was it may be my last affected area. Now I have 5 bald patches ranging in size from a nickel to half-dollar. It is thought that it is due to emotional stress as my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer last January and these spots started to appear the following March. My husband is undergoing chemo with little to not side effects and the treatment will add years to his life, so one would think I would no longer be stressed, I am grateful for that. I just don't know why these are still appearing and should I consider another method of treatment. I plan to schedule another appointment with my dermatologist and I am not sure what to ask for. Could you give me some alternative choices that I may be able to ask him about? I appreciate you being there. Thank you. Claudia Crowe
