Question: I have been a welder for the last year and have experienced hair loss. Could this process have been speeded up by breathing in the fumes?


Answer: It is unlikely that the fumes breathed in from welding will speed up your hair loss. Hair loss in men is usually genetic but the rate could be increased by stress or illness. If the working hours of your job, or the fumes you breathe in can cause either of these then it's possible that this could be a factor affecting your hair loss.

If you would like to obtain an accurate diagnosis and suitable treatment recommendations then I advise you to submit a diagnostic form which can be found at the following link -
