You are suffering from hormonal changes causing Androgenetic alopecia causing hair fall. It's completely stoppable even regrowth of hair is possible with certain medications without any side effects. Treatment depends on the grade of hair loss. So, it's a must for diagnosing which grade, you are in for an effective treatment. Please  send more photos of your head, by direct online consultation for accurate diagnosis and proper treatment.

This condition is called Telogen Effluvium. It's a reversible condition in which hair falls out after a stressful experience. The stress pushes large numbers of hair follicles into a resting phase. Within a few months, those hairs can fall out. Types of stress can include any hormonal issues like thyroid or any major illness like Covid. It's a reversible condition but needs to b treated to prevent further hair loss. Another possiblity could b Seborrheic dermatitis. It is a skin condition that causes an itchy, flaky rash to develop on the scalp, face, or other parts of the body. Many people call it dandruff. U can experience temporary hair loss with seborrheic dermatitis. Consult a Dermatologist

Hi. Greetings. Hair loss can have a variety of reasons and needs to be analysed in detail with respect to history and examination.  Mostly likely,  you are having Post Covid Hair loss  in the form of Acute Telogen Effluvium.  This usually improves in about 3 months.  Pls see a qualified dermatologist near you in person so as to help you with 1. Detailed history 2. Direct examination and hair pull test 3. Trichoscopy / hair microscopy 4. Blood tests if needed. This is routinely followed by most hair practitioners/ dermatologists including our centre. This would definitely help in coming to a conclusion about your hair fall. Regards. Dr Govind S Mittal. Therapeia Skin Hair and ENT centre,  Bengaluru.
