Seborrheic Dermatitis and Hair Loss
I have had seborrheic dermatitis for around 6 months now. I would say I've lost close to 40% density or a little over of my hair. I know the seborrhea is to be blamed because as soon as I started treating it, the hair loss vanished. My symptoms were mild in that it never itched or showed red, and was more like bad dandruff. Will my hair grow back?

You may be 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 call me or  contact me with photos using online consult option for proper examination and treatment. Do not start treatment without consulting. I can give guidance and then you can continue treatment on your own.
