I’m 20 yrs old and i have been losing my hair since i was 14. I’ve noticed my temples are receding quite rapidly and on top of that, my scalp is looking more thin. I have a brother whos 3 yrs older than me and hes been losing his hair as well since he was a teen except his temples aren’t receding as bad as mines. My Father is 45 and his hair looks natural for his age even tho hes its becoming more thin.
i have never tried any hair lost products and i’m at the point where i want to do something right now before its all gone. If you can please give me advice on what to do or recomend me doctors in the L.A. area that can help, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You Very Much.
You need to be examined by a doctor who will look for a variety of conditions, including:
- Male pattern genetic hair loss (shows miniaturization in a defined pattern and sounds like what you may have)
- Alopecia, including a variety of other inherited forms that are not traditional male patterned balding
Only an expert doctor in this field can make the diagnosis. With the gravity of this in a young man, I would suggest that getting the best medical advice is what should drive you at this time. I can not make a diagnosis without examining you, but I would love to see you in one of my offices. There will be no charge for the examination.
