Dandruff and Hairfall

I am 20 years old male
the skin of my scalp comes off like white flakes in small pieces just like dandruff. and I am experiencing severe Hairfall with many bald patches already
please help. I have been consulting a dermatologist and presently goin through a MESO regrowth trestment. but with 2 months past I havnt even noticed any sign of reduction in Hairfall even.
please help. I am pretty sure its due to the dandruff which I dont think is normal
I am using shampoo every alternate day with a anti dandruff shampoo on every 4th time
so its like I am shampooing 4 times a week and I am not using any oil (all these was advised by my doctor but I dont think its right)
I think it may be some fungal infection or some other disease which is causing so much flaking off of my scalp skin and causing dandruff
please guide me......
I am getting bald at the age of 20!

A friend had psoriasis and it looked like big flakes coming from his scalp.  Maybe you could ask the doctor (or a different doctor) whether this could be the case for you.

I think it was a medicated shampoo made for the kind of psoriasis he had.  Don't know any other details (I wasn't a close enough friend for him to comment about taking medication).

   From your description, it appears like a dandruff issue, in which case anti dandruff shampoo should have helped.  May be, you need to consult a general physician (if not already done) and do a full blood test, hormone panel and other health check up to find out if you are suffering from any other health issues and hair fall is just a symptom. Do you have a family history of baldness, especially on mother's side?.
The following link will give you a good discussion on the effectiveness of MESO therapy and other choices, apparently, MESO is not very effective in male pattern baldness treatment.


Hope it helps,

The other thing is, get your thyroid checked.  Thyroid problems can cause loss of hair.
