Hi...Simran.,
Thanks for choosing HCM.,
Hair loss..called ALOPECIA AREATA.,
It is common hair problem in Adolscent, young adults and adults..,
If you take following precautions , you will get good hairs..,
1)Combing and brushing of your hairs 2 times daily.,
2) Don't cut ending of hairs ., there is no advantage by cutting ends..,
side cutting of hairs will stimulate the growth of end hairs.,
3) Shampooing of hairs twice weekly.,with good conditioner shampoo';
4) Application of Hair4U contains Aminexil 5%, Minoxidil 5% (Glenmark).,
daily night times.,
5) Tab..Keraglo( Bionova company)..contains Biotin, Multivit, and Multiminerals.,
or Biotin 10 mg daily for 90 dqays..will get good result.,
6) Tab betamethasone 0.5 mg first 2 weeks alternatively after.,
2 times per week for 3 months...gives very good result.,ok good luck.,

Dont worry, your hairs will come back, have a good diet with proteins , conuslt your dermatologist, he will rule out fungal infection and will give you medication.
Meanwhile try Hairloss cream / hairloss spray .
