ABSTRACT

The study aims to evaluate the social impact of hair loss in men and the success of medical and surgical treatments for hair loss. Hair is considered as one of the most important and defining aspect of human appearance. Androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness (MPB) is responsible for the vast majority of hair loss in men. MPB sufferers actually inherit hair follicles with a genetic sensitivity to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). A structured data collection form was designed with open and close ended questions and a retrospective study was conducted on 111 patients, aged between 18 to 65 years from March 28th – May 2nd, 2012. After evaluation of data, it was found that MPB did have a negative effect on social lives of men. They became more depressed, introverted, less confident and in some way their career was affected too. The results showed that success rate of hair transplantation was more than medicines, as people were reluctant to use them. Minoxidil spray was used more than the finasteride tablets. Quality of life of patients was significantly improved. Role of Pharmacists was not very significant.The patients should be made aware of the existence of pharmacists as they can ensure rational use of medicines.

Keywords: Androgenetic alopecia, Quality of life, DHT, Social impact, Pharmacist, MPB.
