Telogen Effluvium is a very common but often misdiagnosed cause of acute hair loss.In this condition, a person loses bunches of hair daily (200-500 hairs) and over a period of 3-4 months upto 30% of the hair may be lost.However, in the following 3-6 months almost all the lost hair are regained. The common triggers for telogen effluvium are Pregnancy, Typhoid, Malaria, Severe Stress, Seasonal Change etc. The problem is self-limited and full recovery happens in 3-6 months. To hasten the recovery vitamins are added to the diet and sometimes PRP therapy may be done (in Chronic Telogen Effluvium)
