Hi Dear,

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of hair fall which is mainly due to hormonal changes, age factor and could be due to fungal infection. You should not take excess of coffee/tea. I would suggest you to consult dermatologist for proper examination. Doctor may prescribe medicine like finpecia , minoxidil serum , vitamin supplement like omega 3 fatty acid. Take diet rich in Vitamin A, E and folic acid

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
