Hair loss, have bugs in hair. Need help

I have been losing so much hair for the past one year. Excessive Hair Loss! Completely bald! I just recently went to get a haircut from a salon and who knows who has head lice there. One of the ladies, who works there used several different combs on me. Now, I have bugs in m hair! Head Lice that i can t even get rid of! When I came home, I looked into the mirror, I found out I lost tremedous amount of more hair. I have visited several doctors to discuss the problems that I have been suffering throughout the past years and still there hasn t been any solution or anything to prevent or cure the problems I had. Can you help me?

hi..Thanks for your Query!
To treat head lice , you can apply 1% permethrin lotion on scalp for half an hour and then wash off..Repeat the application after 10 days two applications.
As for the hair loss occurring chronically,my suggestion to you would be to do a few blood tests to ascertain the cause before you treat any of the symptoms.
Hair Loss is a condition where multiple causes are there.It may be Familial,its may be telogen effluvium, it may be some ordinary deficiencies ,but without doing a complete work up ,it it unwise to start any random medication.
Any treatment of hairless ,however,I would say is very long term and requires patience .There are also several newer therapies in Anti Hair Loss treatments, e.g. Mesotherapy etc , which help beyond medications.
Hope this helps..take care!
