Hi ,

Thanks for writing in.
The condition you are suffering is Androgenetic Alopecia .
It is a Hormonal condition.

Treatment can be minoxidil,finasteride.

Minoxidil and finasteride in topical form are very safe and effective.

Few procedures like mesotherapy and stem cell therapy can be helpful.
They are available at dermatology clinics.

Also supportive oral tablets containing biotin and multivitamis can be helpful.
Ferrium XT tablet for hemoglobin will be good.
Low Hb means anemia which can cause hair loss.
Kz lotion for twice a week is good.Kz lotion should be applied on scalp at night and washed at morning.

Please consult a good dermatologist for proper examination and prescription medications.

Hope this helps.
