You seem to have Telogen effluvium which generally lasts fir 3-6 months after any severe illnesses like typhoid or any other for which medications were administered for a long time. Eat nutritious food and wash your hair with Ketoconozole based shampoo weekly thrice. Do not comb or brush frequently . If condition worsens consult dermatologist for better management.
