You have developed telogen effluvium that is a common problem of sudden hair fall after illness and this commonly show up after 3-6 after illness. You should take nutrious diet and good sleep. You can also take some hair tonic like adgain and can use minoxidil 2% twice daily and take these medication for atleast 3 months. Consult your nearest dermatologist for further information on treatment as these require supervision. Warm regards Dr Prakash Khute
