Hairfall is not due to one single cause. There are many conditions which can cause extreme hair loss and thinning of hair on the scalp. So first and foremost we have to find the cause of hair fall with the help of detailed history and examination. Some of the common causes maybe nutritional deficiency, hormonal causes like androgenic alopecia also called pattern baldness, hypothyroidism, telogeun effluvium etc. Unless we find and c,read the cause there is no point in giving non specific treatment. Also one should refrain from home remedies as it does not give any relief from hairfall. Oil and shampoos do not have any effect on hair growth as they are not absorbed in the skin.Please contact me using online consultation for proper examination diagnosis and treatment

Hi, excess Hairfall during the recovery phase of a major illness is very common but when there is a background history of continuous Hairfall which gets worse following an illness then it can cause panic. This seems to have been the case. Don't worry...all hair that you are losing will grow back but you have to make some changes in your lifestyle. I suggest you sleep early and eat at least 4 times daily at fixed times. You are underweight which has tilted the scales towards excess Hairfall after the illness. I suggest you have as well balanced diet including fruits daily. In addition, sitting in direct sunlight early morning will help in boosting your immune system. Remember your body is one big complex system that requires a wholesome care and nourishment. Hope this helps...
