SurgeryName: Janis

Question: I’ve been to five or six doctors they say I have chronic telogen effluvium, I had two major surgeries October 2015 one a neck lift and one foot surgery. When doctor wants to put me on Propecia, another wants to put me on Premarin and another one wants me to go to bio-identical replacement, my scalp burns and itches and then I noticed hair loss I don’t notice any hair regrowth. Do you have anything that would help telogen effluvium.

Answer: Hi, Janis. You would need a consultation with a specialist in order to have a thorough scalp assessment before we could provide you with treatment recommendations for your hair loss.

Chronic Telogen Effluvium can be caused by the stress of an operation or an underlying illness and it can take six months or more to clear up. It causes thinning hair all over the scalp and may not become noticeable until around three months after the trigger incident. In people with an existing genetic predisposition to pattern hair loss it can also accelerate this condition, either exacerbating existing signs of hair loss or bringing about their onset.

We do offer chronic telogen effluvium treatment courses, however, if your scalp is itching and burning there could be something else at play in addition to diffuse thinning as these are not symptoms associated with this temporary hair loss condition.

If you are based in London you can visit one of our Central or City of London hair loss clinics for a one-to-one assessment or if you are based elsewhere in the UK or abroad you can complete an online consultation which allows you to upload photos. We hope this helps.
