Brief Answer:
Ketoconazole shampoo, tab biotin

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
I would recommend you to use a ketoconazole shampoo twice weekly and take tablet biotin 10 mg once daily.
This will take care of your hair odour and hair loss.
Also get your thyroid function tests, haemoglobin and serum ferritin levels as thyroid diseases and anemia are common causes of hair loss.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
