Stress triggers hair loss during the COVID-19 pandemic

Hair Loss Covid-19

Hair loss has affected people who have suffered COVID-19 to a greater extent. Patients who have suffered it begin to notice that their hair begins to fall noticeably after 4 weeks.

There are several negative effects on human health that the pandemic is leaving as a result of COVID-19. And it doesn’t just happen to people who get the virus. Among them, one of the most common is hair loss, as has been noted after several months of living with the coronavirus and multiple cases in patients.

Why? It is due to increased stress these days. Many people have stopped sleeping well or are more overwhelmed, thus causing hair loss. To this must be added the fact of having modified day-to-day habits and routines such as at work, eating and playing sports.

These factors mainly cause a greater synthesis of androgens in the body and hair loss occurs. Even also a thinning of the new hairs that are emerging. If the alopecia does not stop in a few weeks, a consultation should be made to make a proper diagnosis and a personalized treatment plan.

Hair loss as a result of what is experienced with COVID-19

Whether due to the COVID-19 infection itself or the stress associated with the weeks of confinement and the uncertainty about its evolution and its consequences, the shadow of the coronavirus is behind most of these cases of hair loss. Between two and three months after the peak of the crisis, the effects on the hair of what happened began to be palpable.

Many of these massive hair loss are a consequence of what happened in recent months. On many occasions the hair reflects what we are experiencing. And just as it grows healthy when we have good nutritional reserves, it also suffers and suffers from infections or situations of great stress.

Hair loss has mainly affected people who have suffered from COVID-19

These are conditions called acute telogen effluvium, which are typical a few months after a severe illness, in this case the coronavirus. Patients who have passed it begin to notice after 4 to 8 weeks that the hair begins to fall noticeably.

It is a hair problem that usually appears after receiving treatment, undergoing a hormonal change (after giving birth, for example), after a period of great stress or when going through some type of infection such as COVID-19 .

What happens is that when we have a very high fever, the hair stops growing synchronously and falls at the same time, hence it is so striking. If this massive fall is prolonged in time and lasts more than three months, it is recommended to go to a consultation to rule out that this ailment is not a consequence of another disease.
