I’ve been suffering from baldness for the last 5/6 years from the forehead to the middle of my scalp. Please suggest hair loss medication that works and I can get easily. Only Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxidil) are proven to stop the progression of male pattern baldness. However, if you’ve been losing hair for 5 to 6 years, you may have already lost a good portion of your hair. Propecia and Rogaine may help slow down, stop, or reverse the effects of thinning hair. Only hair transplant surgery is proven to grow hair in completely bald areas. If you are considering hair transplant surgery, I recommend using the map feature of our website in order to find a quality hair transplant surgeon nearest to you.

I saw a few ingrown hair pimples in the donor area at month 1 mark which I addressed via some antibiotics (prescribed by my hair transplant surgeon) and also topical antibacterial cream.

I have been told that it is sometimes expected as the hair growth starts around the 3 month mark. I have continued to apply the antibacterial cream as advised and even though the number of pimples is now more than a dozen, it is still somewhat manageable. Have others faced a similar experience post FUE? I never had this problem before with my prior three FUT hair transplants. One reason I was […]
