I am losing hair rapidly since few months with heavy dandruff. As my father and paternal uncles are bald so am concerned that can it be hereditary?

Hii You could be having androgenetic alopecia, a type of hair loss that occurs due to high testosterone levels and tends to run in family. Dandruff is also another cause of hair loss. Plz use a ketoconazole containing shampoo twice a week. You can use minoxidil lotion fir your hair loss. But before examination it's very difficult to say. You can see a dermatologist for the same.
