Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am 22 years old. I have problems with my beard. My beard grows in patches, only in certain parts of my face. The remaining areas are clear without any facial hair. It makes me look awkward. Does any supplement encourage hair growth and solve my problem. Is that possible doctor?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Beard and mustache are said to be secondary sexual characters. Some people may not get the full area of beard distribution at a young age. The area and thickness of facial hair increases as you grow.

Repeated shaving also increases the possibility of hair growth and thickness.

But you should also know that there are chances of some treatable causes like fungal infections or a condition called alopecia areata which commonly affect the facial hair growth.

Have a balanced diet with high proteins, vitamins, and minerals.

You can also take Biotin supplements.
