Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Before I can help you, please answer the following questions so I can be sure it is male pattern baldness or androgenetic alopecia.

  1. The average number of hair that fall for you in a day.
  2. Are you taking any medication?
  3. Have you fallen sick in the past one year?
  4. Does your father or paternal uncles have baldness?
  5. Do you have dandruff?

I suggest you try Biotin 10 mg orally and Minoxidil 5 % topically. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start the medicine after their consent.
