Hello,

Hair loss is a common complain of patients who have a history of malaria or typhoid. Medicines used to treat malaria have artesunate is associated with temporary hair loss. Since you also had typhoid, hair loss can occur due to poor diet, anemia & weakness. After typhoid relapses can occur so you should be very careful with your diet. Take home made nutritious food (boiled or cooked in little oil). Hair loss occurs because of lack of nutrition & protein. Take adequate rest & food rich in protein, minerals & calcium.

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

Regards,
Dr. Nupur K, General & Family Physician
