As this is my first trip to USA I really dont know whom to contact or how to get in touch with the doctor. My hair has reduced to half and also I have too much of dandruf as well. Is this someting to worry? Can this be treated? I really do not know why I am experiencing so much of hair fall.. Could you plz help me with this.
