Suggest remedy for hair loss

Hi, I m suffering from hair loss and almost zero growth from past 3- 4 years. I had been to doctor regarding the same, he suggested me to use Germane Scalp Wash shampoo, and 1 gel also. He says I m suffering from Iron deficiency and for that too, he gave me iron tablets, but above all these, there is no much hair growth observed, I feel very very insecure. Can you please suggest me a medicine for hair growth?

Hi,

It may be telogen effluvium most probably. Consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. I would recommend you to take tablet Biotin daily along with capsule Vitamin E.

Iron tablets and folic acid tablets are taken to improve anemia. Apply minoxidil 5% solution on the scalp twice a day. Get investigated for thyroid dysfunction also. And get treatment accordingly.

Anti-dandruff shampoo may be used if you have dandruff.Avoid worries and anxiety related to hair loss. Be cheerful and positive.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilyas Patel,
