Boils in head & hairfall

Hi I have developed some boils in my head since last 8-9 months, which itches a lot. I consulted a dermatologist and he advised triatop shampoo and candid-b lotion. When I use candid-b lotion regularly, it doesn't itches, but after that hair fall started and I have lost almost 50% of my hairs in last 6 months.

Hi You seem to be having folliculitis of the scalp. This is a common recurring skin infection. The medicines that you are using seem to have helped with the condition. However the hair loss which seems to be related has not been addressed. These skin infection can trigger off a underlying male pattern hair loss. There are many different serums available to help you with the hair loss. Please contact a dermatologist who can examine you and prescribe the appropriate hair care products
