AskDocWeb: If we understand your question correctly – results that you can see usually show up from 3 to 6 months after starting treatment. That is, if it works for you and there is no guarantee of that.

Hair loss products

I have been using hair bless, androanagen and zincari tablets .. I want to know the effects and side effects ? Will I have to use them life long ? Please reply in details

AskDocWeb: Sorry Raghav, we don’t keep track of the possible interactions of product manufactured outside of the USA. We can tell you that all of the products on the market today that are used to treat hair loss have to be used continuously because they only treat hair loss. They do not cure it.

I have notice some sort of dandruff while using minoxidil5%..I hv also loosing many hair right now..iam using it for 5mnths..

AskDocWeb: The higher the percentage number of topical minoxidil the more likely you are to experience side effects. Minoxidil 15% is very strong and is not recommended at all in the USA.
The alcohol and propylene glycol present in some topical preparations of minoxidil may dry the scalp, resulting in dandruff and contact dermatitis.

Hair loss at 22 years of age
Date: 10/3/2013
Hi, I am 22 years old and suffer from progressive alopecia especially in the front area (my father and uncles suffer too…they are practically bald people).. I have no other health issues so far and was thinking of taking Minoxidil without consulting a doctor! What do you think? And in case I can what % should I use? The 2% or the 5%? Should I apply it twice a day? Any side effects to be aware of? Any advices?

AskDocWeb: Those who have noticeable hair loss at 22 years of age may want to get a physical exam by their doctor because that can be a symptom of an unknown health problem.

Have you asked your father and uncles how old they were when their hair loss started? Knowing that may give you an indication of when it might start for you.

In the USA the 2% solution of minoxidil is recommended for women and the 5% for men. Many women who used the 5% solution of topical minoxidil have reported the growth of unwanted body hair. The instructions for both say that it needs to be applied twice a day for best results.

Sudden hair loss
Date: 10/8/2013
I am 26years and have been using minoxidil for a year now and it thickened my hair at the crown. i was happy and confident again, then i woke up one morning and all my frontal hair had fallen out, even the one that didn’t have any problem. I’m so confused and miserable and don’t know if my hair would grow back without minoxidil and i am in Africa we do not have specialist in hair so i could run some tests. What do i do, i need your help..

AskDocWeb: Sudden hair loss may be an indication of a serious health concern and needs to be evaluated by a medical doctor. That doesn’t have to be a specialist like a dermatologist, just someone competent to check for bacteria, fungus, worms, radiation poisoning, etc..
