Why Are Young Men Going Bald?

MD - Dermatology, DNB (Dermatology)
Dermatologist, Ahmedabad
Why Are Young Men Going Bald?

Why Are Young Men Going Bald?

Are Despite the development of new upcoming hair loss treatment , products, therapies.Why are so many men balding in their 20's?

Premature balding is turning out to be more of a trend than rarity. And the way we live our lives has more to do with it than genes.

Presently, an American study says two third of men face hair loss by the age of 35, and a bad genetic hand is often to blame. Men are progressing towards baldness as early as in their 20's and that s leap from our father's generation that hoped to walk into their 40's with a full crop of hair.

Is heredity (genes) are the only reason ??

Though the hereditary (genetic) reason is one of the major factors behind balding . But, these genes don't kick so early in life. Research says male pattern baldness due to genetic factor starts by the age of 40.

In the present world, there are lot many other reasons, that accelerate the permanent loss of hair. Four main enemies are stress, poor nutrition, pollution n vices.

First and foremost is:
1. STRESS: Level is rising day by day n people are not able to cope up with the level of stress these days. It can cause hair fall, thinning, the impaired growth of follicles . While genetic plays a key role in balding , a stressful lifestyle can play a havoc.

But, this is in our control. Opt for stress management techniques. Indulge in the morning walk, yoga, dancing.

2. IMPROPER DIET:
Bad diet, junk food, food faddism is responsible for thinning. This causes lack of essential nutrients in the body.
We are all we eat, drink, breathe everything you do can affect hair follicle directly or indirectly .

3. SMOKING: Smoking causes oxygen deprivation in body n indirectly damages the hair follicle . Also, nicotine hampers blood flow and retard the growth of the follicle.

Alcohol intake also affects hair follicle. Moderate alcohol intake does not damage much but regular guzzlers are at risk. Alcohol decreases iron n zinc absorption , causes dehydration . And the hair is almost water, so excessive alcohol intake will leave it brittle.

4. LIFESTYLE: Undisciplined life, lack of sleep triggers hormonal changes in the male body . These hormone cause suppression of the hair follicle.

5. CHEMICAL EXPOSURE: Use of excess hair care products , styling treatment, straightening, too much shampooing can weaken hair shaft.

So, genetically is not in our control. The silver lining is that we can control factors and delay balding.Understand your body, what signal body is trying to give you.

Sir if the swelling is small, it is usuallu done under local anaesthesia. Hence, elaborate blood testing is generally not required. BT, CT are advised to rule out blood disorders (which may lead to excess bleed during the procedure). And if you wish u can still undergo

Hi, cortical steroid creams have side effects and instead of curing the disease they suppress the eruptions where applied and then bring back the eruption at another place. So first stop the application of creams. Take sulphur 30 1dose in a week revert back.

Hair loss, also known as alopecia or baldness, refers to a loss of hair from the head or body. Baldness can refer to general hair loss or male pattern hair loss. Hair loss and hypotrichosis have many causes including androgenetic alopecia, fungal infection, trauma (e. G. Due to (trichotillomania), radiotherapy, chemotherapy, nutritional deficiencies (e.

I am suffering from severe hair fall please suggest the best methods to reduce hair fall.
Thinning, falling and loss of hair are very common problems among persons of all age groups. Hair loss can result from a number of reasons. Among them, genetic predisposition and autoimmune conditions play a major role. Other important causes includes eczema of the scalp, tinea capitis, nutritional deficiencies, thyroid problems, hormonal changes, drugs, fever, stress, medicines used for treating hypertension and cancer. Homeopathic mode of treatment has good scope and can aid regrowth of hair. Homeopathic medicines stimulate the hair roots to promote regrowth. The medicines used in Homeopathy to aid hair regrowth are all of natural origin and therefore, safe for use among persons of all age groups. Homeopathic Medicines are natural and completely safe without any side-effects. The top three on the list of Homeopathic medicines for hair regrowth are Fluoric Acid, Phosphorus and Baryta Carb. Please note that Every case calls for detailed study of the patient individually. There are no disease specific medicines in homeopathy. The exact treatment is determined only on "in-depth" evaluation of the individual case. The medicines mentioned are commonly indicated in hair loss, only for the purpose of information. It is advised not to indulge in any kind of self-medication and consult a qualified Homeopath. Your feedback matters. Thank-you.

Am working in system, so around my eyes I got black circle, it looks ugly, is there any home remedy.
Hei, include the following for getting better vision: vitamins a, c, e, and minerals like copper and zinc are essential to eyesight. Get the antioxidants from dark leafy greens, egg yolks, yellow peppers, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Include garlic and onions. Blueberries, grapes as they have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help improve your vision. Dha is a fatty acid found in coldwater fish like salmon, sardines and mackerel. Exercises for strengthening eye muscles: -begin by partially closing your eyes; the lids should only be halfway shut. After holding for 10-15 seconds, close your eyes very slowly. Take a few deep breaths to increase oxygen in the blood. -warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. -hold a pen at arm's length. Focus your gaze on the tip of the pen. Bring the pen closer to your nose at a slow and steady pace. Repeat this exercise 5-10 times. -concentrate your vision on the tip of your nose. Then shift your gaze to an object further away, either at arm's length or 20 feet away. Then shift your eyes back to the tip of your nose. Repeat this exercise 10 times. -sit in a relaxed but upright position. Begin by look to the left-most position (without moving your head) and hold to stretch your eye muscles. Hold for 5 counts. Blink and return your gaze back to look straight in front of you. Then look to the right-most position with your gaze and hold for 5 counts. Repeat 3 times, blinking between each hold. Then, repeat this exercise looking up and then down. Do not forget about blinking. -sit in a relaxed but upright position. Look up and to your right for 5 seconds. Return your gaze to center. Look up to and to your left for 5 seconds. Return your gaze to center. Look down and to your right for 5 seconds. Return your gaze to center. Look down and to your left for 5 seconds. -one helpful way to do this is to imagine that you are looking at the number 12 on a clock. Then, follow the numbers around the clock with your eyes. Repeat going the other way around the clock. -massage your temples. Using your thumb knuckles, massage your temples in small circles, 20 times in one direction and 20 in the other. Repeat the same actions above the midpoint of the eyebrows at the forehead, then below the eyes on both sides of the bridge of the nose. -take a mini-nap. Put your head back, close your eyes, and relax for 3 minutes. Insufficient sleep may weaken your vision, so shoot for 8 hours of sound sleep a night. Rest your eyes 10 minutes for every 50 minutes spent reading or in front of the computer. If your eyes feel overly tired, lie down and place cooling cucumber slices over your eyelids. Medication: apply homoeopathic cream - bakson's eye cream twice a day daily. Take physostigma 6/ thrice daily for 1 month and instill euphrasia eye drops twice a day. Thereafter, revert back for further guidance.
