Covid-19 and Hair Loss

Simone Thomas Trichology Clinic in Dorset Offers Treatments For Coronavirus Hair Loss

Hair Loss Clinic DorsetWe all know that Covid-19 is an aggressive virus that can damage our bodies from top to toe. It is now emerging that in some cases this can include hair loss. If you have noticed any changes to your hair due to Coronavirus, help is available at Simone Thomas, leading hair loss clinic in Westbourne.

The International Association of Trichologists has reported two different types of hair loss attributed to the virus: diffuse hair loss and alopecia areata. Scientists are still working to fully understand the way that Covid-19 attacks the body, but it’s clear that it prompts a strong response from the immune system. 

As the the immune system fights back, the body’s resources are diverted to fighting the virus and protecting the vital organs. As the hair is not vital to the body’s functioning, it is one of the first things to be impacted in the case of illness. The hair growth cycle is disrupted, sometimes stopping altogether. The result can be sudden hair fall, which in the worst cases can be similar to that experienced by cancer patients after chemotherapy.
