Severe Mono back with hair falling out. Cause for hair fall and treatment?

I am 18, and had a severe case of mono back in November. My hair is falling out, and what was once a thick head of curly hair is now thin and different texture. Blood test for thyroid and metabolic came back normal. Plus my scalp looks healthy according to the doctor that I saw. What is causing this and will my hair start to grow back?

severe mono can affect your hair and you may feel hair lost up to 8-9 month after it.
we call it telogen effluvium ,it is due to stress that body suffer during mono.
the good thing is that you will get your back in next 6-7 month
better to consult dermatologist
