Severe hair fall and dandruff. What can be done? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you today?
could you please help me, in avoiding hairfall and dandruff
Actually if dandruff is the cause then mostly the treatment is based on increasing the local immunity of the scalp
What should I do to increase the immunity of the scalp
Mostly anti-dandruff shampoos worsen the hair loss.
It is a better idea to switch to a mild shampoo like Mildy.
mildy? is that a brand of shampoo
It is available at the pharmacies.
Yes it is a shampoo
Also taking precaution like shampooing less frequently helps.
will this mildy help in avoiding shampoo
The idea is to use a mild shampoo that does not change the normal flora of the scalp.
It should be a non-medicated shampoo
Baby shampoos are also mild.
just for calirfication, I heard about nizrol , for antidandruff
what would you suggest on that
is that better one to use
I do not recommend it as it may worsen hair loss.
Using healthy nutritious diet, vitamin supplements and regular exercise also helps.
diet, what is the best diet for avoiding hairloss
Mostly hygienic diet and clean drinking water work for reducing these symptoms.
do you suggest any specfic brand for mildy shampp
The brand is Mildy
Another one is Triclenz
Oil can be used once in a month
usually i heard , its better to apply , but the number of hair which i loss is reallly 100-200 when i apply oil
Just take care not to use a medicated oil.
medicated oil ?
Not to use a medicated oil.
There are some oils that have natural medicines.
It can alter your scalp immunity.
will change in shampoo, and hygienic good , will that be enough to avoid dandruff and hairfall
It will help in reducing it.
please dont mind as am aksing againg and again :) but really am scare with the haifall percentage
hope you can understand :)
We should not aim for eradication as it is a part of altered flora.
I also recommend that you get tested for iron-deficiency.
Mostly vigorous treatment will also not help.
But with proper measures it will not get worse.
yup, am expecting all sort of measures and tips i can follow to avoid dandruff and hairfall
Hairfall can be reduced with stress-free life and multivitamins especially biotin
Dandruff will mostly stay.
is biotin tablet?
It is also recommended that you go for basic blood tests.
It is available as a separate tablet and also as a component of multivitamins.
ok, what would you suggest, am also concern about avoiding any side effects
Vitamins do not have side-effects if taken in a moderate dose.
Topical medicines for hair-regrowth can have some side-effects but can be taken safely for a few months.
so shall i start but with biotin
It is better to get a prescription for it from a physician.
It is safe to start
didnt get you, do you want me to consult a physician ?
Well actually I meant that you may take medicines after consulting a physician as he will be able to examine you.
Do youhave a question?
but in regars with shampoo, triclenz is best over nizrol and rest?
is that what you suggest
I will try to explain it a little
pls go ahead
Usually anti-dandruff shampoos have anti-fungal medicines to control dandruff
What happens is that the anti-fungal component tends to fight the normal and abnormal fungi growing on scalp.
In the process resistant fungi start growing and can cause problems like dryness, flakiness and acne/pimples on the scalp.
Local bacteria start growing on the resistant fungi making things even worse.
It results in hair loss.
In the process person starts taking more anti-dandruff shampoo and anti-bacterial hair products.
And a vicious circle starts.
Are you understanding what I am saying?
And more hair fall happens.
Thus it is important to leave the dandruff alone and just take care of hair loss.
Slowly after stopping the medicines local immunity of the scalp starts to build up.
And the hair fall reduces.
That is the explanation behind my recommendations.
Do you have a question here?
thanks alot for you explanation
You are welcome.
For now I will only recommend to use mild shampoo.
Later when hair loss is stopped, then we can try other things.
ok thank you
Do you have a question?
No, nothing as of now
and thanks again for your patience
Thanks for coming on chat
