I have been to many dermatologists and i have been told by one that my scalp was red and i was sent a shampoo but to no avail. A second dermatologist said it was simply male pattern baldness. The only issue is that i am losing my hair from the middle all the way from the front to the back, is this male pattern baldness? as far as i understood it usually starts on the sides and moves in, mine is strictly a big strip in the middle.
There’s no way for me to know what is going on without an exam, but male pattern baldness does not start on the sides of the head. Actually, the only hair that should be untouched by hair loss should be the hair on the sides. If there’s redness, that’s something your dermatologist can treat.
