Brief Answer:
Regarding hair fall

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have gone through your query and noted your concern

Hair fall could be due to several causes but a recent onset excessive hair shedding is most likely to be due to Telogen Effluvium - wherein the hair follicles get shifted from growth phase (Anagen phase) to shedding phase (Telogen phase) due to a precipitating factors like a prolonged or acute/ severe medical illness or surgery in the preceding few months, recent delivery, significant weight loss, severe psychological stress like e.g bereavement and nutritional factors like deficient iron stores (Serum.Ferritin is an indicator) or Thyroid derangement (hypo or hyperthyroidism). I suggest you to screen for thyroid hormone levels, serum ferritin levels, vitamin D 3 levels and Vitamin B 12 levels and then follow it up.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance.

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
I would specifically like you to do serum Ferritin, Vitamin D3 and Vitamin B 12 levels which are not done in these. In the meantime you may take an oral Biotin supplement e.g Tab. Revilus once a day and use a serum on scalp e.g Renocia solution (2ml ar night) daily.
Take care
