Customer Question

Hi,
My hair has been falling out on and off and it has thinned to half of what it was. My scalp became very dry and has been itching around the back of my neck, head and sides. Please advise.
Thanks
Gina

Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

The symptoms you have described are that of fungal infection of the scalp which is most likely cause of hair fall in your case. I would recommend you to use ketoconazole ( antifungal) shampoo mixed with your regular shampoo twice a week. Massage scalp with twice a week. One month course of multivitamins can help.

Hope this helps.
