Thanks for the query. One - two month of hair fall usually relates to an acute cause or sometimes the beginning of a chronic cause. Your hair fall could be related to a condition called telogen effluvium and is most likely as a result of dengue? Are there any acute stressors, any unusual problems? It settles in few months time even without any treatment. You should have a healthy diet and good sleep.
