Hair loss after covid
Hi, I got covid in last week of April this year and recovered on 17th May... However, after that I am having extreme hair loss like people have when they undergo chemo. I never had hair issues previously...except for dandruff and I had lovely volume, lustre and no hair loss... I am extremely worried since my wedding is approaching... What do I do? Is this even normal? Will I go bald? I have been eating alma and applying amla on my scalp with oil... Washing it in regular intervals... Having protien rich diet like eggs, nuts, seeds, chicken, mutton etc... The only thing I don't do is get some sun. Please advice and help me... The hair loss is causing me a lot of anxiety
