I would like to know why my hair is thinning in the back of my head. What should I do to grow it back?
My 8 year old son suffered from folliculitis. He now has had a patch in his head for the past 2 months. Will his hair ever grow back?
Maybe: The hair bearing areas are tolerant to some localized disturbance & will often regrow hair after the inflammation settles down. If significant scarring occurs, it can leave a hairless patch. If bothersome to a kid as they grow older, the area can be cut out & the remaining scalp stretched & re-aligned to cover the defect. ...Read more
My friend have problem in hair. ..he have gap in his head. So how to grow hair in that gap? Which food want to eat? Which oil is to use it?

If developing male-pattern baldness, can use medication for hair growth or get hair transplant. No food or oil will help this case. ...Read more

I cut a part of the skin on my head due to which I lost hair in that part. Will any hair grow back in that area?
Not on scars: Hi. Was the area shaved for stitches? Hair follicles don't grow out of scar tissue, but if the scar is narrow, and the surrounding skin is making hair normally, when it grows back, the scar may be barely noticeable. Your "topic tags" mention baldness and alopecia...those don't grow back normally! Good luck! ...Read more
