Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 23-year-old-female. I have been losing a lot of hair since last year. I do not see any bald patches but I do see my hair thinning over time. I do not understand why this is happening since I have always had a mane full of thick hair. Is there any way I could stop the shedding of my hair?

Answered by Dr. Payal Chauhan

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

There can be a lot of causes of sudden increased hair fall which can include sudden weight loss, stress, illness, dietary changes like crash dieting, drugs, childbirth, thyroid problems, anemia, etc. If you think you have any of these kindly mention it. Get the following investigations done.

1. T3, T4, TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone).

2. CBC (complete blood count).

Take the following medicines after meals for 3 days meanwhile with the consent of your doctor.

1. Tablet Hairfollic (multivitamin) woman one tablet a day.

2. Tablet Autrin 1 (iron supplement) tablet once a day.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
