Question: hello sir my stress medicine continues & my hair loss 125 in per day around to normal?? age 21

Answer: Hi, Jay. The rate of hair loss that you mention here may be a little high but it depends if the rate is constant over a decent period of time as this is only slightly higher than the 100 hairs per day shedding average which is considered normal.

If you are troubled by stress and/or hair loss as a side effect of medication then this could be causing the extra shedding. Although both these issues can cause temporary hair loss from telogen effluvium and will generally clear up in around six months time, they can trigger male pattern hair loss if you have an underlying genetic predisposition.

Telogen effluvium causes diffuse hair thinning from all over the scalp whereas male pattern baldness only affects the top of the scalp and hairline area. Belgravia’s specialists can tailor hair loss treatment courses to help promote regrowth and prevent thinning hair for both of these conditions so there are options available if you wish to look into these.

If you are concerned it is best to get a professional diagnosis of your hair loss condition so that a treatment plan can be formulated and recommended to you based on your specific requirements.
