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. 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. 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

Hi docs, would monostat 7 (yes, the vaginal cream) fix my male pattern baldness?

Hi docs, would monostat 7 (yes, the vaginal cream) fix my male pattern baldness?

No: Sorry, friend. Your choices are medication (ask your general physician), surgery (ask a specialist), or deciding to embrace your genetics and masculinity and otherwise look your best like photo guy. I hope you get the outcome you want. Best wishes.

When do balding men finally stop losing their hair?

When do balding men finally stop losing their hair?

Never: Balding or male pattern baldness is a progressive physiologic change that occurs to varying degrees as men age. It's an inherited trait that effects people differently. If you suffer from hair loss, topical and oral medications exist to help maintain the hair you have and transplantation procedures exist to reposition and mask the bothersome hair loss areas.

Hair loss: Cipla has a generic medication for propecia (finasteride). Propecia (finasteride) is used in the United States to treat hair loss.

Pls, can cipla stop baldness? And where can I get this drug in nigeria? Lagos to be precise. Thank you

Pls, can cipla stop baldness? And where can I get this drug in nigeria? Lagos to be precise. Thank you

Don't think so: Cipla appears to be a drug company that makes antivirals, aids medications, heart medications, asthma inhalers, and some other meds. Not sure if the company makes any drugs to slow down balding. Beware of any claims by a drug company about being able to "stop balding" because such claims sometimes are false or exaggerated.

What natural medications or herbs can I use to reverse or stop male pattern baldness at age 18?

ALOPECIA TX: Alopecia or hair loss may be multifaceted. You need full Exam &lab work up especially Vit d/Thyroid studies /TESTOSTERONE/ b12 and folate. If they are normal start high dose Biotin zinc B12 and folic acid. Rogaine (minoxidil) and Propecia may be helpful. If there is no improvement consult dermatology for biopsy to rule out auto-immune ALOPECIA AERATA. With supplements start low and go slow.

Dermatology consult?: The condition you described (alopecia areata) could be inherited or acquired. It might has associations with other conditions. Treatment would be different. Try dermatology consult.

I have taken estrace (estradiol) for several years. Recently I took testosterone cream for a week. (got jittery, discontinued) hair loss has occurred. Help!?

Hair Loss: Testosterone can cause hair loss. This is why men go bald and women generally do not. Any physical stress, including rapid changes in hormone levels, can also cause hair loss. The hair will grow back, but this takes time.

I read that accutane can cause hair loss due to vitamin a, but that topical tretinoin cream can cause hair regrowth. How does this make sense?

It doesn't: Because this is not the case, may be with some anecdotal cases, but not the norm or a common effect or side effect, the drug works on the sebaceous glands not the hair follicles.

I was wondering what's the probability of me becoming bald as a woman if all my men in family are?

I was wondering what's the probability of me becoming bald as a woman if all my men in family are?

Different process: Women who have hair loss usually have it diffusely and it's unrelated to the testosterone-driven progressive patterned loss seen in men. If you do develop excess androgens later in life, it's something that can be managed easily to prevent hair loss.
