Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am a 19 year old boy with extreme hair loss. Even at this age, my scalp is clearly visible. I tend to lose around 100 strands of hair daily. Please help.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

A person normally will lose 100 strands of hair daily. The problem of hair fall arises if the person loses more than 100 strands of hair which tends to make a visible scalp leading to androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness. The main culprit is the DHT-dihydrotestosterone (the pivotal androgen in men) to which the hair is sensitive to, therefore DHT blockers will prevent hair fall.

Investigations to be done

None required.

Probable diagnosis

Androgenetic alopecia.

Treatment plan

The treatment for hair loss has individual variability, not all treatments will suit all people, and the treatment takes a minimum of six months for its full effect. 1. You can continue with Grocapix gel (hair growth gel) and capsule Logihair (collagen peptide, grape seed extract, multivitamins, multi-minerals, and Amino acids) since these treatments will take some time to show the effect. 2. A new technique called platelet-rich plasma can be tried, which should be taken at intervals of 2 to 3 weeks for 5 to 6 sittings. 3. Other treatments include Minoxidil (antihypertensive vasodilator), Saw Palmetto lotion (a natural serum that promotes hair growth), and lasers. Once you send the photographs of your scalp, it will be easy to suggest further treatment options.
