I am a leukemia patient. My treatment is completed and it ended two months ago. I wanted to ask you about my hair. They are thin and bald from the between (crown side) and I want to know whether it is a permanent loss. My hemoglobin level is 14 grams per deciliter, TLC-4700 per microliter, and platelets 1.74 lakhs per microliter of blood.
In the majority of people hair regrowth gradually starts to develop. Using 2 % Minoxidil spray can help further. You can consult a specialist doctor and start using the medication with their consent. But in a few people hair regrowth does not occur and a wig can be worn in such cases. You can consult a good cosmetic dermatologist to discuss if hair regrowth does not start in a few weeks.
