M-shaped Baldness At The Age Of 19 Years?
Hello DokI I have a problem where I have bald shaped M and my age is only 19 years old. I did experience severe stress and dandruff growth which was quite severe in a few months before I slowly realized that I was experiencing baldness. After I realized, in 2 months now I no longer experience stress. However, my hair looks still difficult to grow and baldness is still very clearly visible. The baldness that I experienced really made me very depressed, especially I was required to shave 3cm. ? With notes, I am 19 years old and there is no genetic history of baldness from my family. What should I do in the future? I am really very inferior and feel the worst …
Thank you for the question.
In men, baldness forming like the letter M on the front of the head mainly arises because of hormonal balance disorders, especially the hormone dihydrotestosterone. Not only that, baldness is also thought to be influenced by a variety of other factors, such as genetics, aging, autoimmune disorders, stress, scalp infections, improper hair and scalp treatments, side effects of drugs or radiotherapy, to certain psychiatric disorders (such as trichotillomania ).
Treatment for baldness like you should ideally be done by going directly to a doctor or dermatologist. With a direct examination, a doctor can certainly do a thorough evaluation, not only on your physical condition and medical history, but may also do blood tests, microscopic examination, and even scalp biopsy so that treatment can be carried out on target. Later, some medications, hair vitamins, or maybe laser procedures and certain surgeries can be recommended by your doctor.
For now, what you should do is:
Control your emotions well
Do not carelessly perform hair and scalp treatment procedures, especially without consulting a doctor first
Wash your hair diligently with a special anti-loss shampoo
Don't exchange headgear with others
Protect the scalp from direct exposure to excessive sunlight
Eat a variety of nutritious foods, especially those that contain lots of iron, calcium, zinc, and magnesium
Do not smoke
Maintain your ideal body weight, and exercise regularly
Hope this helps ...
