Hair Loss (Definition)

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.

With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called ...Read more

I am 28 years old male. Facing male pattern hair loss from last two years. Need to know what medication need to be taken to avoid hair loss?

I am 28 years old male. Facing male pattern hair loss from last two years. Need to know what medication need to be taken to avoid hair loss?

Several options: In addition to the Minoxidil which I see that you are using, you may try Propecia / finasteride. There are also surgical options. Or you may decide instead to embrace your masculinity and genetic heritage and opt for no treatment. You're a man, and looking good is 95% physical fitness, which unlike hair restorers actually makes you healthier. Photo guy isn't complaining. Best wishes. ...Read more

I am 18 years old male and am facing severe hair loss. I do masturbate once or twice a week. What might be the possible reasons?

Probably genetic: Depending on the pattern of your hair loss, it is either genetic or caused by an underlying health problem. Masturbation will have nothing to do with hair loss. If your front hairline is receding and/or the crown is thinning, you have genetic hair loss and should visit a hair loss specialist. If you are losing all over your head, see your family doctor for tests. ...Read more

Hello I am a 22 year old female with hair loss problems due to nerves and I wanted to know what can I put on my hair or take to help it fill in?

Best to treat cause: First off, at least 2 of my siblings have suffered stress induced alopecia so I know how it can be related to nerves. However, not knowing you I am compelled to ask whether you've done a complete workup to discover if in fact, nothing else could be responsible such as hormones and such. If it is truly stress induced then, you MUST address that problem to definitively treat your issue. All the best ...Read more

Consult b4 Bloodtest: As a traditionally-trained MD, I was taught to examine & talk 2 the patient before ordering any blood tests. Diagnosis can be made >85% of the time from a detailed history and physical exam & this is never more true than with hair loss. 95% of all male hair loss patients have NORMAL blood tests.

I am 27 year old woman. I am recently started to suffer from hair loss. <br/>Visited Dermatologist and she prescribed me to use Morr F3% at night dail?

Minoxidil/Finasterid: While I was not able to locate Morr F3 at www. Drugs. Com, it does appear to be a combination of Minoxidil (blood pressure lowering drug) & Finasteride (prostate shrinking & hair loss med). Both are traditionally used in men suffering from hair loss. However, Finasteride is Category X in women trying to conceive. So make sure you're using appropriate birth control (i-Pill doesn't count). ...Read more

I am 24 year old guy suffering from hair loss. I've been on biotin and rogaine medication for about 2 years, haven't seen noticeable difference. Help!

Often fails: Biotin isn't going to help. If you have alopecia areata, nothing will help. This is probably too long for telogen effluvium. Especially if you're naturally blessed with a lot of great body hair and a thick beard, rogaine may not slow male pattern baldness. Shave your head, grow some great facial hair, hit the gym, and embrace your full masculinity. Nothing looks better than a buffed, balding man. ...Read more
