Scalp itching and hairs fall off. Receding hair line terribly hurts my pride. I tried minoxidil 5% topical for one month with no result. Treatment?

In brief: Alopecia

Hair loss in men is very common and in most cases is genetic.
The two appoved treatments are rogaine (minoxidil) and propecia. Minoxidil is the generic version of rogaine (minoxidil) and is available otc. Propecia is oral and is prescription. Keep in mind that you must use either of these products for at least 3-6 months to see hair growth.
