Hair loss is one of the many unforeseen occurrences during the COVID-19 epidemic.

His reason? In a word: stress.

The type of hair loss associated with COVID-19 is called Tellogen Fluvium (TE), Purfisha Patel, a board-certified dermatologist in Memphis, Tennessee, and founder of Visha Skin Care. TE is the result of high stress on the body, and occurs in response to mental and physical stress.

The turmoil of the epidemic is enough to motivate him. However, if you have the COVID-19 infection, you may also experience double depression due to physical stress. In addition, because the epidemic has been delayed for a long time, and Tei has been in a state of general decline, hair growth could be affected, Dr. Patel said.
