Patient : I'm a teenager and have noticed hairloss over a span of year. recently i noticed gradual loss in hair and paid a visit to my doctor. he recommended me Minoxidil topical solution USP 5%. But to be truthful, i have been masterbulating over few years now (i can't discuss about this with my parents and doctor;so only you can help me out); i have read recently that masterbulation increases testosterone which leads to hairloss. Though i have controlled my masterbulation now but hairloss is is still considerable. please help me out. I'm just 17.
