Hi. Patchy hair loss could be due to alopecia areata. This could be confirmed on photographs if you could send. It may not be related to your c section you have undergone. Alopecia areata may last for few months or years but can be treated with injections, lotions and tablets depending on the extent and activity of the disease. Kindly see a dermatologist for confirmation of diagnosis and further management of your condition..
