Hi Dear,

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of hair loss which seems to be mainly due to systemic causes.

Need not to worry. I would suggest you to wash hairs after proper massage with olive oil. I would suggest you to consult dermatologist for proper examination. Doctor may order blood test, skin patch test and can do physical examination . Doctor may prescribe you drug like finpecia at least for 2-3 months or antifungal treatment along with minoxidil spray. You should maintain complete hygiene. You should use Finasteride preparations. You should take supplements like Vitamin A ,Omega-3 and Vitamin E.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
