Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You seem to have androgenetic alopecia. I suggest you to use minoxidil 5 %solution, 1ml, twice daily. In addition I suggest you to take an oral finasteride 1mg tab once a day for long. Both of these are approved remedies for androgenetic alopecia.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

One year back suddenly, hair growth stopped in my part(around 2 cms) of my left mustache. I consulted one of dermatologist and he suggested to apply Minoxidil in that area and i used it for two months and I didn't find any hair growth. Because of this I have to shave regularly. sometimes I am getting a feel like insect moving on the skin. Please give me the reason for this and how do I get hair growth in that area again. Please help me in this regard
Thanks in advance for your advice.
