I am 34 yrs old and I suffered from typhoid in the months of march-april 2012 and since mid May I am experiencing severe hair loss. I never had issues of Dandruff or any other scalp related diseases. What are the chances of hair regrowth and how long with the hair fall continue? I am currently taking Xtraglo tablet at night and an Iron tablet in the morning.
Hair loss can arise from extreme stress and medical illness. It generally reverses and hairs do grow back provided that the patient did not accelerate the male pattern balding that he may have had from his genetics. It does take up to a full year at the least for the hair to return.
