Whitening of hair, beard
Hi! I am 29 years old and work as a software professional. I do exercise regularly and drink only on specific occasions such as outing with friends etc.,. I have noticed a gradual increase in whitening of hair and also white beard recently. I had noticed a few strands of white hair when I was pursuing +2 studies. The problem becomes worse in winter seasons and also I think my recent visits to US might have contributed to it. Is it because of any vitamin deficiency? Or side effect of cold conditions? Which doctor should I consult ? Dermatologist? Thanks!
