Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
I have gone through your complaints and need to ask you few questions:
Do you have diffuse hair loss or hair loss mainly from the crown area of the scalp with receding hairline?
Is there any recent history of typhoid, dengue or chikungunya?
Are you having any other ailments or taking any medicines?
Do you have hypothyroidism or lice in the scalp?
Is there any history of surgery, accident, stress or trauma in the recent past?
Have you recently changed your shampoo or conditioner?
Kindly revert with the answers.
