Hi,Sujini ji,
Thanks for query.
As your hair fall started after your illness and medicines taken for long time.
This may be the cause of hair fall.
You inquire your doctor about your illness and medicines.
If you are having anemia,vitamin deficiency,some problems on your scalp also cause hair fall.
use good branded hair oil containing vit E.
Have nourishing food,green veges,fruits.
Take Iron,Vit E,A,D.
ok and bye.
