Dermatologist Dr. Bharat Chawda's  Response
Hi!Vivek,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,

The most common cause of hair loss in males is ANDROGENETIC ALOPECIA (MALE PATTERN BALDNESS) .Other rare causes are iron deficiency, hormonal, thyroid problem, stress, lack of sleep, familial ,zn & copper def etc. One has to find the exact cause of hair loss and treat.
You can start with topical preparations like Minoxidil sol 10% or 5% applied twice daily on scalp. Take tab biotin one daily. If you are above 18ys you can also take tab finestride once daily for couple of months. This would help increase the thickness of hair. But you need to consult a dermatologist for all this .
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.Chawda

Dear Dr,           My name is Prasanth, 24 years old male from India. I have my sad story to tell about hair fall. I have been losing hair since I was 16 years. I have tried several treatments to control it. But nothing could cure it. In my family no one has such type of hair loss. I have high sebum production in my scalp and face. I have no pimples in my face. But in my scalp, I get slight yellowish/ whitish waxy balls and maybe it would be attached to the roots of each fallen hairs. It’s all over in my scalp. New born hairs also fall out like this. I am losing 150 hairs in a single day. What do I do? Will new hairs come back in the place of fallen hairs which had been lost because of excess sebum? Please explain dear doctor. I am so worried about that. Thanks

I am a 24 year old female and do horseback riding. I ve been having some issues with cracking sounds coming from my knees - and sometimes pain when it occurs - whenever I climb up stairs. I m also unable to keep my knees bent only slightly (standing upright but knees bent) for a long period of time, before pain sets in. I ve been riding since 2007 and have never had this problem before, it only became apparent recently. Could it be because of an iron deficiency? I had to take iron supplements a few years ago for a period of 3 months and picked up some more this morning because a few of the other symptoms I m experiencing also seem to point to iron deficiency. Kind regards
