Hair Loss and Covid


Why are COVID Patients Complaining of Hair Loss as a Side Effect?

Lots of Covid Patients are complaining of hair loss and a lot of doctors think that it could be cause by physical and emotional stress of fighting off the virus. This causes a hair loss condition that is called Telogen Effluvium.

This condition normally occurs a few months after a stressful event occurs and can cause hair to fall out. Your hair enters into the telogen or otherwise known as the resting stage so it begins to fall out.

This can be heart wrenching for people who have had to fight off the virus BUT there is an upside – it will most likely grow back!


Will it Grow Back?

Most of the time, the hair will return to normal. You might notice baby hairs near your hairline and your hair should return to normal in about 6 – 9 months.

Thought it can be really frustrating, you need to allow your body to recover from the stress it was put under due to the illness, and then it will begin to regenerate your hair. You just need to give it time!

If you feel like your hair caused by something other than Telogen Effluvium, you should definitely speak to a dermatologist.
