A Chinese study presented by the Lancet Medical Journal showed that about 25% of those who recovered from the Corona virus suffered from hair loss over the next six months, as well as symptoms of fatigue, fatigue, depression, shortness of breath and insomnia.
A review of this latest Chinese study, published by the British Daily Mail newspaper, today, Tuesday, described these symptoms as “long-term Covid 19” that was recorded on 359 people out of 1655 patients in Wuhan, China, who were subjected to observation.
The newspaper said, this 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 according to dermatologists, hair loss is a natural physiological response to a stressful event such as an infectious disease, and it may only be temporary If it leads to alopecia areata, then the hair may permanently fall out.
The study figures showed that 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.
Medical interpretation of hair loss
Last summer, Dr. Natalie Lambert of Indiana University School of Medicine conducted an online survey, with 1,567 people who had suffered from the symptoms of “long-term covid”, to find that 423 of them had developed hair loss.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, hair loss caused by Covid is mainly due to what is known as “telogen effluvium” or (TE) – a condition that results from a disruption in the hair growth cycle.
On the other hand, specialists at the Belgravia Center in London reported that there has been an increase in the incidence of telogen effluvium since the beginning of the epidemic, reaching 64 percent in males and 38 percent in women.
