Thank you for posting on HCM.
I appreciate your concern regarding hair fall
From your description, it seems you might be having Telogen Effluvium
, which is hairfall secondary to stress. Telogen effluvium is commonly seen after any recent medical illness or surgical operation.
If i were your dermatologist/trichologist, i would like to take through history including family history, history of recent major trauma/illness/stress/medications etc and recommend some basic investigations like CBC,blood sugar,Thyroid
function test.Some other special investigations like trichogram and dermoscopy and further aid in diagnosis and prognosis.
I would suggest you a course of oral tablets containing biotin
and other essential vitamins and minerals
for minimum 6 months. Also, would put you on solution containing 5% minoxidil
once a day and a hair serum containing peptides for hair growth at night.(Q sera etc). I would advise use of gentle shampoo and conditioner on regular basis and use of coconut oil twice a week.
Also enquire from your dermatologist about upcoming treatment options like mesotherapy and platelet-rich plasma
Avoid combing in wet hair and let them dry by wrapping in towel. Avoid blow dryersand hair-color/dyes. Take plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet and try to de-stress your routine life.
Hope your queries are resolved and wish you best of health.
