Hair Loss/hair loss


hello sir...i am 19 years old male.i am loosing hair since this time 60% of my hair has fallen out.i consulted a dermatologist 9 months ago.he prescribed me-
1.Finasteride tablet
2.Minoxidil 5% lotion
3.Nizoral shampoo
i have been taking the medicines for 8 months but the problem is nothing has benefited me morever my hair has more this time i am loosing hair from everywhere.the back side of my head was densed but during this 8 months my back side has also sheded a lot.besides my hair is so oily.and sometimes pus filled itchy bumps form on my scalp.please help me doctor.i am so depressed.i am going bald at this age.

Anytime a scalp disorder accompanies hair loss, the scalp disorder must be addressed first. Did you get a diagnosis as to what may be causing the itchy pustules? Pustules can be a symptom of scalp folliculitis. Scalp folliculitis can be caused by bacteria, fungus/yeast, or mites. Some forms of folliculitis can cause scarring and permanent hair loss if left untreated.  
Did the doctor who prescribed the medications tell you what type of hair loss you are experiencing? Do you have any bald areas? Is the hair falling evenly throughout the scalp? Has the excessive shedding been continual since 2008? More information may allow me to help you further.

Female hair loss is my main focus. Women today are very susceptible to several types of hair loss including telogen effluvium, alopecia areata, and androgenetic alopecia. I can answer questions about the causes and types of female hair loss. I can share information about natural holistic remedies to improve female hair loss conditions.


My interest in female hair loss sprung from my own experience with extensive hair loss. Determined to grow my hair back, I diligently studied every piece of information I could find on the biology of hair growth. After successfully re-growing my hair with safe and effective natural products, I felt compelled to learn more and to share this information with other women. I am experienced in blending custom hair loss formulas. I am also experienced in writing about female hair loss issues.

My hair loss information has been included in The Truth about Womens Hair Loss by Spencer Kobren, Naturally Healthy Skin by Stephanie Tourles, Alternative Healing by Bill Gottleib and Natural Health Magazine. I am the author of several books on hair loss.

I am a certified aromatherapist specializing in formulas for scalp and hair conditions.
