Hi Sushma
Welcome to HCM
Your hair loss pattern is like telogen effluvium, a condition of shedding telogen hair after some condition like high fever, hospitalization ,surgery, purturition, pregnancy and others. Maximum hair fall occurs usually after 2 to 3 months of these causes. But this condition is reversible. so you need to wait for new hair.
For early regrowth of hair i like to suggest you the following...
i) Apply minoxidil spray 5% twice daily for at least 2 months.
ii) Take a preparation of biotin 1000mcg daily for 2 months.
iii) We need follow up after end of 2 months
With regards.
