Hi Debasree,

Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

As per your query you have severe hair loss and you are applying mintop with a cream that is not easily available.

My dear friend we do use this lotion for hair fall problem but we never ever mix this lotion with any cream. I am really surprised to know that even parlours are prescribing the mediations in their own way. This is good that till now you haven't had any problem but in future be careful for such kind mixtures. That cream may contained steroids in it which temporarily reduced the problem but in long term it can cause potential side effects.

I request you to meet a proper dermatologist who can guide you best for your hair fall problem which appears to be simple male pattern baldness which every of male has got.

Other than this treatment follow a good dietary plan in your daily schedule. You should know that our hair are basically made up of proteins and supported by certain simple biochemical known as minerals and vitamins. So every of the food item which contains good amount of proteins with vitamins and minerals are best for maintenance and growth of good hair.

Hope this information helps you. If you have any further queries I will be happy to help.

"Wish you good health"
