Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Does this problem exist in your family? If yes it is androgenetic alopecia that is common in males and related to male hormones. Premature greying of hair is also genetic and as such there is no treatment for reversing of grey hair. However, you can take Biotin supplements to reduce it. Use Minoxidil spray for this patch of hair (attachment removed to protect patient identity).


Probable diagnosis:

Androgenetic alopecia?

Treatment plan:

Use Minoxidil spray BD over the scalp. Take Biotin supplements.
