Suffering from hairfall. Had vitamin, mineral tablets. Any connection between excess white discharge & hair fall?

Hello sir I am 26 years old women. I am having hairfall for the past 12 years. I had a very good hair before hair fall. Now the hairs are seems to be thin &unhealthy. I consulted many doctors & all of them prescribed some vitamin/mineral tablets and mindoxil. Then i could see some improvement. But when i stops medicines again the hairfall starts. Do i get healthy hair back. Is there any connection between excess white discharge and hairfall. What are the diet i should follow for a healthy hair.

Welcome to HCM,
Normally also hair grow in cyclic pattern; scalp hairs rest for 3 months and it is normal to lose some hairs during this state. Telogen effluvium is a conditional shedding of abnormally large quantity of hairs in situations like certain stresses such as pregnancy, surgery, acute febrile illness, acute psychiatric illness or severe emotional or physical trauma.
In your case as vitamin and mineral supplement does help to improve your hair health so please continue to take supplements under guidance of Good Dermatologist.
Please also consult a Good Gynaecologist to find out if there is any thing abnormal about th discharge which you have.
In the mean time have well balanced diet nutritious diet and exercise regularly. It is also important to reduce stress by some yoga and meditation - this helps in treating hair fall. Keep your head clean with good shampoo and condition them with good conditioner protect from direct sunlight.
Take care
Good Luck

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

There is no connection to white discharge...
There is no specific diet - usual balanced diet is all that is necessary...
Heredity / hormones - dictate the density and distribution
Continue minoxidil -as long as you want the results!
Consult a dermatologist ...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
