Hair loss and COVID-19

Hair Loss Covid 19

Confinement due to the COVID-19 pandemic has had consequences on the hair health of many people. Hair loss became one of the consequences associated with the coronavirus. Currently, it is being investigated whether the virus has any direct relationship or has an effect on it.

For now, it can be said that hair loss cases are associated with COVID-19, not directly related to virus infection, but because of the stressful environment in which the patient lived through the pandemic.

As confirmed by the Dermatological Medical Institute, there has been an increase in consultations related to hair loss, a pathology in which stress and anxiety are risk factors. In addition, the fear of contagion by the disease has made patients stop going to the dermatologist to have a diagnosis or follow a treatment already started.

Is hair loss from confinement normal?

Yes it’s normal. We are experiencing an extraordinary situation, generated by the emergence of COVID-19. That forced us to decree the state of alarm and the consequent confinement that is being felt in hair health.

Stress and worries increased. They are very important factors. As a result of the appearance of the coronavirus, we have been subjected to uncertainties, changes in routine, fears, lack of sleep and other factors that cause a greater synthesis of androgens in our body. Thus, greater hair loss occurs.

Hair loss, a side effect of COVID-19?

After recounting her experience with the coronavirus, the famous actress Alyssa Milano published a video on Instagram in which she shows one of the most unknown side effects of this virus: hair loss.

“I just want to show you what the coronavirus has done to my hair,” she says, showing an image in which she brushes her hair and shows the strands that have come off her head with that simple action.

With statements like that, the question remains: does the coronavirus have to do with hair loss? It could be a side effect. According to a study carried out by the Survivor Corps organization of 1,700 people, 65.7% of those surveyed said they had experienced hair loss, while another research carried out in the United Kingdom speaks of 27% of those affected.

The Spanish Academy of Dermatology (AEDV) launched a study with 100 people to determine if the cause is, as it seems, the result of post-disease stress or if it could be a reaction to some type of drug to treat the coronavirus.
