Hi Suman , thanks for your query , you are suffering from acne vulgaris and diffuse hair loss . You can take biopregf for your hair fall but you have to use minoxidil 5 % Solution locally 1 ml twice daily on your scalp And for your acne along with pigmentation you have to use TAB Isotretinoin 20 mg Once daily for 6 weeks with local application of clindamycin 1% gel during the day and benzoyl peroxide 2.5%gel locally during the night and mild face wash like CETAPHIL OS . Imp instruction: do wash your hands after application of minoxidil and tab Isotretinoin will cause slight dryness of face and cracking of lips ( can use vasaline on lips) but don't worry it will go away as soon as Isotretinoin is stopped .
