Heavy hair fall
I'm suffering from heavy hair fall.Nearly 30% of my hair falling down in one day. 2 months back I was suffering from dengue fever and admitted in hospital for i week. Is this hair fall because of Dengue? I 'm going to loose all my hair it seems, what should I do now? I started feeling frustrated. Should I use a wig and wait for the hair to grow again?
