It sounds: like you would benefit from a consultation with a Board Certified DERMATOLOGIST ...you may have a REVERSIBLE scalp condition which might stop or slow down your hair loss...there are a number or OTC preparations with ROGAINE for promoting hair growth HOWEVER the "field" for the growth should be checked out BEFORE trying to grow or plant more!!!! Hope this is helpful DrZ
