Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have been suffering from scalp psoriasis and male pattern baldness grade 3A. Can I go for PRP treatment for hair fall control? I am presently using Finasteride, multivitamin and Minscalp F 5 % solution.

Answered by Dr. Suvash Sahu

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read your concern.

Yes, you can go for PRP therapy (platelet-rich plasma). It is a good therapy for hair fall with excellent results. It basically activates platelet-derived growth factors, which are the key factors for hair growth. It is a must to use Minoxidil 5 % lotion daily during night. Also, I suggest tablet Xtraglo (Biotin) once daily for six months along with this therapy for better results. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take treatment with consent.

Thank you.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

Would there be any complications of getting PRP as I have scalp psoriasis?

Answered by Dr. Suvash Sahu

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

PRP is prepared from your own blood. So, it is entirely safe provided there should not be any infection at the injection site.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
