Hello again,

Thanks for follow up,

Yes, there may be correlation between lack of facial hair and poor memory.
Lack of facial hairs may be due to:

-Micronutrients and vitamins deficiency: as I mentioned as first cause in primary reply. Start some multivitamins preparation daily.

-Hormonal imbalance: Get serum TSH/Testosterone/Prolactin level done to rule it out.


Wish you good health,

Hello again,

Thanks for follow up,

For multivitamins: take Revital 2 times a day.

For investigations you can visit any good lab like: Lal, Religare or path lab in corporate hospitals. It will cost between 1000-2000 Rs depending on lab.


Wish you good health,
