Hi doctor,

My hair started falling since ten years. I started my exam preparation with a lot of stress, which resulted in a lot of hair loss. There was a lot of hair on the bed and around the room. I simply ran my hands through my hair with wet hands and at least 15 hair stands came out. My hair falls out a lot while I am taking a bath. What can I do to stop my hair loss? Please help.
