ANSWER: Dear Suhail
Thanks for your elaborate & lengthy question.
You are suffering from multiple diseases.
You have dandruff (Seborrheic dermatitis)& Male pattern baldness (MPB).
Constipation should be corrected but constipation is not a cause of hair loss.
Masturbation is not a cause of hair loss.
Discharge after urination is a normal phenomenon.
Milky discharge after urination may be normal, if you have no sexual exposure.
You have to take medicine as long you want to preserve your hair.
