If you are concerned about the possibility of MPB, keep an eye on it by taking good quality photos of your scalp every six months. These photos should show your vertex and mid-anterior areas with your hair both wet and dry and parted down the middle if it is longer. It is also a good idea to measure the distance between the center of your brow line and the center of your hair line every six months and keep a record of that distance. This way you will more easily be able to detect changes if MPB begins to happen.
You would need to talk to a doctor who specializes in treating hair loss to determine if Finasteride is appropriate for you. At this time Rogaine (or generic Minoxidil) is certainly not appropriate for you. Using Nizoral A-D shampoo once a week in place of your regular shampoo would be a good idea though. It would also be a good idea to replace your regular shampoo and conditioner with a good quality sulfate free shampoo and conditioner if you haven't already done so.
