Hair thinning problem
Submitted: 12 days ago.
Category: Dermatology
Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 12 days ago.

Is this global or scattered hair thinning?

Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 12 days ago.

Hair loss can be due to genetical or environmental factors. The most common cause is due to genetic causes. Other causes are vitamin and iron deficiencies, and therefore, it is a good idea to see your GP for routine blood tests.
