Photos cannot diagnosis your hair loss. The old fashion way of seeing a doctor in person for an examination is still the best way to go.  Steroid shots do not treat genetic hair loss.  There is no cure for genetic hair loss.  (Mainly because it is genetic)

Hair loss -- PRP, Progesterone, Viviscal, Rogaine, Finesteride, Spironolactone, follicular unit (FUE) hair transplantation/ARTAS

There are options such as spironolactone, PRP/progesterone, and rogaine.  I suggest you see an expert for treatment options.  Dr. Emer.

I would not recommend any treatment without having a diagnosis in hand first. See a doctor who will make the diagnosis

Benefit from Cortisone for AGA?

jolievoila,Sorry, but I do not think that cortisone will render any benefit for someone with genetic hair loss either MPB or FPHL.

Corticosteroids for AGA - no

No, you would not benefit from steroid injections if it is discovered that you have AGA. This is not a treatment for AGA.
