Could I have hair re growth in bald head? What can I do?

Bald spots: It is important to determine the cause of the bald spots and treat that problem first. For instance, if you have ringworm infection causing bald spots, it is necessary to treat the infection with an antifungal medication. A topical or oral treatment may be required. Only then can healthy hair grow and cover the bald spots. See a Dermatologist who can evaluate your scalp and give you proper therapy

Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia. Alopecia areata occurs when the body's immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out. Androgenetic (or androgenic) alopecia, on the other hand, is an inherited form of hair loss.

Alopecia: It seems like you might have alopecia areata which is a disorder where the immune system destroys the hairs. It can often be successfully treated by your dermatologist.

Maybe: A temporary bald patch which regrows on its own can be due to skin irritation, stress, a fungal infection on the skin, or many other things. If this new patch regrows and doesn't otherwise bother you (no itching, flaking, pain, other symptoms), it's fine to just watch and do nothing, but if you start having any other symptoms or if the patches get bigger or don't go away, check with dermatologist.

Agree w Dr. Baker: See dermatologist to evaluate for reason for this so that an individualized treatment plan can be developed. For healthy hair growth: Get adequate sleep, avoid excess sugar & fat in diet, v carbonated beverages, eat enough protein, exercise regularly. Biotin helps (but don't over do it). Insure you have adequate Iron (think kale & other dark green leafies), Omega 3 fatty acids (think walnuts) >

Male pattern baldnes: Check out http://www. Webmd. Com/skin-problems-and-treatments/hair-loss/male-pattern-baldness-directory for basic info. Minoxidil & finasteride are approved for treatment of hair loss. Former increases blood flow while latter decreases conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone. It's less likely to be due to thyroid condition or stress. Check w/Dermatologist or hair transplant surgeon.

Will starting metformin increase my hair loss? I have PCOS and suffer from male pattern baldness and gradual thinning. I am desperate to find a solution for my hair, which was once very very thick, but also want to lose weight. (I'm 5'4 and 149)

Male pattern baldnes: Male pattern baldness in a female sounds really odd. I don't know how you got that diagnosis but it sounds to me like you should go see an endocrinologist and bring with you any test results of things that you already have done to you. You live in LA. Go to one of the University Medical Centers and get a good workup.

Alopecia, steroids: Topical steroids such as this will help in certain cases of alopecia, such as alopecia areata or if inflammation of the scalp is present. In many cases however they will not induce regrowth. The cause of the alopecia must be established first by a dermatologist, as then any treatment advise can be specific.
