Severe hair fall
I have suffering hair fall since 2 to 3 years. There is no hereditary problem in my family at all. Hairs will get very oily and brittle every morning when I woke up. If I does not wash for 2 days, scalp will get very itchy and fair fall will be more severe. After 2 days hairs will become like as if oil was applied to the hair. Apart from this, I have severe burning eyes, feet, palms during all day and bodyaches at night. All my lab tests were normal including cbc, thyroid, etc, which were ordered. I have prescribed and tried lots of multivitamins, minoxidil, ketaconazole shampoos, oils, and saw palmetto, etc. Nothing is working for me. Any dermatologist I go they prescribe the same medicines with different company names, which does not work at all. No dermatologist could find actual root cause of my hair fall. Plz suggest what else i can do..

You seem to be having increased sebaceous glands activity on your scalp. You will benefit from oral finasteride tablets. How long did you use minoxidil? It takes at least 3 to 4 months for minoxidil to start working. Minoxidil must be applied for at least one year without a gap. Please discuss your problem with one dermatologist rather than changing the doctor. Tell them you have tried the treatment suggested but are not finding any improvement, ask them if a different treatment is needed. Also ask how long you have to use the medicines. You may fix an appointment with me if you want an opinion from me. Warm regards. Dr. Rajdeep Mysore. Chirag Hospital Bangalore
