Hello doctor, my name is Eugene, I live in a village where there is no trichologist. Therefore, you have to look for a solution to your problem via the Internet.
I'm 25 years old now, and I already have bald patches coming from my forehead. I tried to grow bangs, but then my appearance looks squalid and unnatural.
I was advised to do a head massage, including bald areas, with a soft massage brush, for a long time I have been doing the procedure six times a day, for 10 to 15 minutes.
As a result, new hair in the form of a cannon began to appear on the balding areas.
I wanted to shave to zero, but changed my mind - my face shape does not allow me to wear such haircuts.
It turns out that for two years in a row, with the help of a massage comb, I do not let my head completely go bald, it seems that the hairs are thicker than steel.
I tried to drink vitamin complexes, used homemade masks for hair growth, but the desired result could not be achieved. Bald spots remained, tell me, if not difficult, how to solve my problem.
Hello Eugene, as a rule, baldness is not treated at a distance. According to the signs you described, we can say that you have an androgenetic form of alopecia.
This form of baldness is easily recognized by the following symptoms: first of all, hair falls out on the temporal lobes, then near the forehead, and only then on the crown.
But since you regularly do a head massage, you were able to save the parietal zone from baldness.
Otherwise, bald patches would gradually spread over the head to the dark and eventually form the appearance of a horseshoe.
The reasons for the appearance of bald patches at an early age are reduced to the increased sensitivity of hair follicles to the male hormone, also known as an irritant, dihydrotestosterone.
In this case, baldness could be inherited by you, which complicates the treatment of alopecia, but if this is not the case, then you need to look for the cause in lifestyle.
Perhaps you lead an inactive lifestyle or abuse smoking and alcohol, then you will have to seriously reconsider your existence.
In addition, bald patches at an early age can indicate the development of a dermatological disease, for example, fatty seborrhea.
Perhaps bald patches appeared against the background of an endocrine disease. There can be a lot of such guesses, in any case, you will need an examination and consultation of a specialist.
As for treatment, with a disease such as androgenetic alopecia, agents are used that stimulate the vital activity of hair follicles, together with drugs aimed at treating the cause of baldness.
As a rule, this is "Minoxidil" - stimulating hair growth, "Finasteride" - suspending the production of dihydrotestosterone, vitamins, amino acids.
For external use, ointments and lotions containing mineral-vitamin complexes and arginine are prescribed. I hope that the information I have provided will allow you to make the right decision.
