Brief Answer:
Hair loss and its management

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to ask a doctor service
I have gone through your query.
There are many causes of hair loss and treatment depends in the cause.
The most commonly encountered causes are anemia, thyroid disorders, hormonal problems, chronic disease, certain medicines, recent history of fevers like typhoid, dengue, recent history of accident, surgery, child birth and crash dieting.
I would recommend you to get your thyroid function tests, haemoglobin, serum ferritin, serum vitamin B12 and serum vitamin D levels to rule out any underlying problem.
Meanwhile you can start with hair supplements like tablet follihair once daily.
I hope to have answered your query and would be happy to answer any further queries.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
