A new study found that many of those who have recovered from the Covid-19 disease caused by the emerging corona virus are at risk of developing hair loss..
And the Chinese study, reported by the “Daily Mail” newspaper, indicated that 359 of the 1,655 patients in Wuhan (22 percent) had suffered from hair loss six months after they were discharged from hospital..
This study comes to search for more symptoms that have become known as the symptom “long-term Covid 19”, which is led by fatigue, fatigue, anxiety, depression, shortness of breath and insomnia.
According to the newspaper, the recent Chinese research is the largest group study with the longest follow-up period to assess the health consequences of adult patients who have recovered from the emerging corona virus, and that follow-up lasted from January 7 to May 29 of last year..
Dermatologists say that hair loss is a natural physiological response to a stressful event such as an infectious disease, and it may be temporary unless it leads to alopecia and then the hair may fall irreversibly..
According to the study, 63 percent suffered from fatigue or muscle weakness, 26 percent from sleep difficulties, 23 percent from anxiety or depression, while 22 percent suffered from hair loss..
Last summer, Dr. Natalie Lambert of Indiana University School of Medicine conducted an online poll with 1,567 people who had suffered from the most severe “long-term Covid”, finding that 423 of them had experienced hair loss..
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, hair loss caused by Covid is mainly due to what is known as “telogen effluvium.” (TE) – It is a condition of hair loss caused by a disturbance in the hair growth cycle.
On the other hand, specialists at the “Belgravia” Center in London reported an increase in the incidence of telogen effluvium since the beginning of the epidemic, reaching 64 percent in males, and 38 percent in women..
Raleigh Bozenova, a hair therapist at the Belgravia Center, said: “It is very common for hair loss associated with telogen effluvium to appear about three months after a period of severe trauma, illness or stress, which is consistent with our findings.“.
