Huge hair fall, depressio

I am 22, male I have been losing my hair so badly since last 2 months and it still continues to fall. I am losing my hair not only from my head but also whole body. 30 - 100 daily. There is no history of baldness in my family. During last two months I had many works and lately I felt tensions and depression due to hair loss. I have already lost 50% of my hair. I am I going bald? Or will my hairs grow back ? Please suggest me how I should treat it. Thanks.

Thanks for the query. Male pattern baldness (MPB) is an increasing problem in today's society. Hair care is a daily ritual shaped by age, gender, socioeconomic status and internal health. With increasing affordability people are more aware of the cosmetic appearance and hair fall forms a major part of the complaints. It is more difficult to manage if there is a family member with similar hair fall, it indicates genetics and we know that the person is destined to lose hair if not intervened and corrective measures are not taken. The treatment typically consists of usage of oral medication (Finasteride) and topical lotion (Minoxidil in 5% strength). One needs to be patient with the treatment protocol as it takes months to see initial improvement. Minoxidil is recommended by US-FDA for indefinite usage. Certain dermatologists supplement biotin, hair serum and advice procedures like PRP therapy which may accelerate the rate of hair growth. PRP needs multiple sessions (4-6) roughly at 6 weeks intervals. PRP therapy is increasingly being accepted by dermatologists all over the world.
