Hi there,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
You may be suffering from chronic telogen effluvium or female pattern baldness. The two can be differentiated by a simple hair scan.
You can take biotin suppliments. Minoxidil lotion helps in improving the blood circulation to scalp and induces hair growth. You can start minoxidil 2% lotion apply 1 ml twice daily.
You need to check Serum ferritin and thyroid profile in a laboratory.
It is better to consult a dermatologist who will guide you further.
Take care.
Hope this was useful to you.
Regards,
Dr Shilpa Bhat M. D Dermatology.
