First get done thyroid function test to rule out hyperthyroidism. As hypothyroidism is the most common cause for hair fall. Start vitamin A and vitamin E capsules as both are good for hair growth and nutrition. Also avoid dust and pollution. Scalp hygiene is must. Please hit thanks.

doctor1 MD

Depends on the cause. If hormone levels such as thyroid are low then, that needs to be corrected. If nutrition is a problem then, that has to be identified. Sometimes, STRESS is the cause of hair loss (alopecia). Sometimes it can be a fungal infection of the scalp. And then, of course, it could also run in the family. First, identify the cause then, discuss the treatment. Click THANK YOU plz

Hi, Welcome to healthcare magic forum. Boil can be treated with antibiotics and anti inflammatory agent if it has pain or inflammation. Commonly used antibiotic is Cap-Amoxicillin 250-500 mg 3-4 times daily for 5 days.
