Que: I am only 17 years old and am losing hair left right and centre and my hair line is receding drastically. I am a little worried and even though I am aware of Propecia, I am not sure if it will help me. Please tell me what I should do?
Ans: At the age that you are at, the reasons for hair loss could be several, ranging from dietary issues to hormonal changes. It would be best that you meet a doctor immediately, because with a physical exam, they will be able to give you the proper diagnosis. In most probability, your doctor will ask you to try medical management first, in the form of Finasteride, Minoxidil, multivitamins or platelet rich plasma therapy, first, before recommending a transplant.
