Brief Answer:
Androgenetic alopecia

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to askadoctor plateform.. I got your problem regarding hair loss. As you said you are having male pattern baldness. There may be recession on forehead both side. We in medical language tell this condition as ANDROGENETIC ALOPECIA.

As the name suggests that there is a role of genes as well as hormone-testosterone. You may be having family history of same condition in your father,grand fathers and uncles on both side .. patternal and matternal side.

There are different grades according to the involvement of scalp. …Grade l to grade IV

I would like to prescribe few medications to to halt the further hair fall and to regrow the new hairs. You should keep patience and take the treatment for the long time.

1) Tab finesteride 1 mg daily one morning
2)Tab biotin 10 mg daily at night
3) Minoxidil 5% solution.. apply twice a day on scalp
4) ketoconazole shampoo … daily scalp wash

Above drugs should be continued for few months to few years, after consulting the nearby dermatologist.

Avoid worries and stress. Have positive attitude. Take treatment for long time. Diet has no role in such condition.. still you should take nutritious food. There is no restriction in food.

Hope this helps you.

Thanks.
