You are suffering from androgenic alopecia which is also called as pattern baldness. The hairs start reducing in density at the crown (top) and also the hairline starts receeding  from the front. This is usually progressive throughout life unless treated. It is usually accompanied by severe dandruff which we call seborrhoea. The FDA approved treatment for this condition is the best. No oil or cream will magically work because the hairs are getting miniaturised  and eventually disappearing due to the hormonal effects of DHT on the hair roots. Please contact me with photos using online consult option for proper examination and treatment.

Hi. Hairfall in young men could be patterned or unpatterned and either related to external causes or genetically pre-programmed as in the case of androgenetic alopecia. You may be suffering from early onset androgenetic alopecia. Does your father or brother or maternal uncles have balding? This could genetically predispose you to balding. Further environmental factors , pollution, stress, junk food and poor diet could cause you to lose hair further. You'll probably need treatment with hair care lotions or serums - something that has vasodilator properties and improves thickness of hair and reduces hair loss. Have a good balanced nutritious diet. Yes, your hair density can be restored if you take timely treatment and care of your hair. There are also advanced therapies like platelet rich plasma therapy, microneedling, mesotherapy with hair growth promoting solutions, etc which improve hair growth and thickness.If you have dandruff also, you'll need an antifungal shampoo – applying oils may worsen dandruff. See a qualified dermatologist near you /contact with photos and further details . Hope this helps. Caution: Make sure you see a qualified MD / DNB/ DVD dermatologist for all your skin and hair issues. Don’t be lured in by quacks. Know your treating doctor/ discourage quackery!Warm regards, Dr Govind Suresh Mittal, Therapeia SKin Hair and ENT Centre, Bengaluru. #bengalurudermatologist
