Hey, I am 22 years old. I had dengue 2 months back. Since then I have had heavy hair fall. For 20 days I have been suffering from intense hair fall, During washing my head, hair fall is countless . Is it common? should I visit a doctor? Is this because of dengue?
@dimple-mehra Hello, This occurs usually two to three months after an illness like dengue, typhoid, etc. This may continue for a few days to weeks. The hair usually comes back and grows normally after this episode. If very severe or persists for a longer duration, it may be worthwhile visiting a qualified dermatologist.
Maintain a healthy diet with vegetables, fruits, and proteins. Avoid harsh shampoos and avoid shampooing daily.
