Thanks for choosing HCM.,
Hair loss due to Typhoid fever is common...,
This type of hair loss called....TELOGEN EFFLUVIUM..,
The hair loss occurs after the completion of the Telogen phase..,
and therefore it starts approxamate 3 months after the onset of..,
the TYPHOID FEVER..,new hairs will already started to grow but will .,
appear after 3 months only..ok...,
1) Supplimentation of diet with Proteis, Vit B complex and Iron..,
generally helps to regrowth of hairs..,
2) So need not go for specific treatment ok...good luck.,

Hi ahad;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Hair fall is due to many reasons like stress physical/mental;hormonal ;anaemia;fevers like typhoid/malaria etc .In your case probably it started as a problem after typhoid fever.There is a condition called telogen effluvium where hair fall is fast & is a self limiting disease .So the best thing you can do is to consult a Trichologist /Dermatologist he will examine you & try to find the reason Then probably he will advise you regarding treatment.

Dear Ahad
Any kinds of Bacterial infection which is longer in duration ( Course of disease) causes malnutrition and hypovitaminosis which could be the cause of hair falling in the convalescence, only after typhoid infection it does happen it is over all myth no scientific reason is there to prove this, have a balance diet fresh fruits little amount of dry fruit drink lots of water avoid spicy food oily food avoid using strong shampoo do not put too much any kinds of oil in your hair the problem will get corrected soon
