Symptoms of hair loss and baldness in men

After a few years, there may be a so-called “moon”, and the hair loss can eventually result in only hair remaining in the neck and on the side of the head.
If there are men in the family with this type of hair loss, there is a greater risk that you will also lose your hair in this way.

Non-hereditary hair loss

Other types of hair loss are usually more common in the scalp. This applies, for example, to hair loss after fever, metabolic disease or severe physical or mental illness.
In case of hair loss caused by dandruff eczema or psoriasis, the scalp will dandruff and be red.

Causes of hair loss and baldness in men

In men who are genetically predisposed to normal hair loss or baldness, the hair follicles are more sensitive to the male sex hormone testosterone.
In the scalp, testosterone is converted to the growth inhibitory substance dihydrotestosterone, which leads to hair loss or eventually baldness.
Men with normal hair loss have neither more nor less testosterone in their blood than men who retain the hair on their heads.

What can you do yourself about hair loss and baldness?

You can do nothing to stop the development other than using one of the two preparations approved for the treatment of hair loss and baldness in men (see under “Treatment”).

Study of hair loss and baldness in men

Normally, with this type of hair loss or baldness, one will not do further analyzes of the hair or scalp.

How does hair loss and baldness develop in men?

Usually, hair loss and later baldness in men is a condition that comes on insidiously over the years. One cannot expect a sudden improvement – only a slow deterioration. At some point, however, the hair loss may stop, after which one no longer loses the hair.

There are currently 2 approved preparations that can stop hair loss and may even cause new hair growth as long as you use the means:

Minoxidil solution that can directly stimulate hair growth. Must be used morning and evening (available over the counter)
Finasteride tablets that reduce the formation of the growth inhibitory substance dihydrotestosterone in the scalp. One tablet daily (prescription required).

The treatment must be taken regularly for at least 6-12 months before you can see if it works. The earlier the treatment starts, the better.
