Hello,

Hair fall can occur due to multiple causes. Stress definitely contributes to hair fall but as you suggested you have hair thinning also which suggest you might have androgenetic alopecia / patterned baldness. Diprovate contains steroid so don't apply that for long time as it has its own side effect, it is usually given to control initial inflammatory reaction that causes active hair fall. If you have pattern baldness, proper treatment need to be started. Get you thyroid profile checked.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Deepti Shukla, Dermatologist
