Hello doctor,

I am 32-year-old male, lately suffering from excessive hair loss, not only in a particular area on the scalp but all over thinning. No any other disease, no medication, height 183 cm, and 81 kg weight, overall, being healthy. Recently had blood tests and all reports look fine. One concern she asked me is whether enough proteins am I getting? As I am a vegetarien by food habit. She also suggested that I can try any medications without prescription like Biotin etc. Also, I see a lot of sticky dandruff, which is causing itching sensation on my scalp. Please suggest any medicine I can bring from other places and some tips on food, so I get enough proteins.

His male pattern baldness (also called androgenetic alopecia) is not a disease but aging process (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Treatment is 5 % Minoxidil lotion apply 1 ml over the dry scalp twice daily morning and night. The minimum time to show the effect will take six to eight months, and it can be continued life long for maintaining hair growth and density. Tablet Biotin 10 mg is a hair supplement which you can take once daily it is not compulsory to make this tablet but lotion you have to apply. For dandruff, you can use this shampoo like Keraglo AD or scalpe shampoo twice weekly.
