What causes hair loss after delivery?
Q: I am losing hair since delivery and have not experienced fever or any other illness that causes hairloss. My hair has also thinned (approximately to half) but there is no baldness as such. Would you suggest Minoxidil or any other solution to be applied directly to the scalp? Also tell me about the shampoos -particular brands -like Nizoral, whether they could cure my dandruff problem?
A:You probably have telogen effluvium, which often follows a stressful situation. A good nourishing diet is more than enough. Medicines are required only in a small number of cases. Your doctor should be able to tell you what you are suffering from and advise accordingly.
