Brief Answer:
Continue dexorange. Apply Nizoral shampoo.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. As such it is normal for more than 100 hair strands to fall everyday. However, iron deficiency can also lead to hairfall and since dexorange is providing relief, I would insist you to continue with it. I will also insist you to apply some antifungal shampoo like Nizoral (ketoconazole) twice or thrice daily. I do not suppose anything else is required.

Let me know if I could help further.
