Hi Manish,
the hairfall just after typhoid fever known as telogen efluvium (a medical term). this is a common after any long illness when the all hairs goes into end stage and do not fall during that period. after 2-4 wks of illness,most of hair tend to fall in a bulk.
So no need to worry, itz only a temporary fall. in this period you can take a good protein diet, multivitamins tablets with iron and biotin, green leafy vegitables.
use a nice conditionar and hair oil for shoothing..
hope this will help you
