Post Covid Hair Loss

Post Covid hair loss is real. Many people have experienced it, and even dermatologists say they have seen an increase in cases. If anything, it will only increase stress, and more stress means more hair loss. It is very common to face hair loss after Covid. In fact, 70% to 80% of patients will definitely face this problem after being infected – said Dr. Stuti Khare Shukla, popularly called as Hair Growth Queen of India. According to the hair specialist, this type of hair loss is called 'telogen alopecia and normally, it takes 24 months to stabilize. It is most common when you have a flu, have had surgeries in the past, or patients suffering from acute stress. “Covid causes quite a lot of acute stress among everyone, which leads to severe hair loss. Generally, our hair cycle has different stages, when our body experiences some mechanisms of stress, our hair will enter the static stage and finally start to fall out after 2-3 months. This is the mechanism of telogen hair loss, and patients may suffer from hair loss for up to 4 months. Usually, hair loss during Covid19 will stabilize after 4 to 5 months, but if it continues for more than 5 months, you should consider the possibility of consulting a dermatologist,” Dr. Stuti told TheHealthSite.
