In 2019, SARS-CoV-2 infected nearly 50 million people with the virus, and about 1,230 million died. The spread of COVID-19 and its worsening morbidity and mortality have led to global health emergencies.
Distribution of covad-19 and alopecia
The prevalence of AGA in men and women was 79% and 42%, respectively. The incidence of AGA in men of the same age group was 31% -53% and the highest prevalence of AGA was 38% in women over 70 years of age. The results showed high levels of AGA in patients with CVD-19.
Kovid-19 Association for Alopecia
The CV-19 epidemic is associated with stress. People infected with the virus were under intense psychological and physiological stress. In addition, the body reacts to SARS-CoV-2 infection, causing tissue damage and other consequences. Pro-inflammatory cytokines are released and anti-coagulation mechanisms are weakened, which can trigger hair loss through systemic inflammatory reactions and / or micro-thrombi hair follicles.
People with severe COVID-19 infections have been reported to have higher levels of pro-infection cytokines, which may be associated with an increased risk of hair loss. In addition, blood clots form in response to the covad-19 infection, and the concentration of anti-protein proteins is reduced due to reduced production and consumption. These factors can lead to the formation of microtubules, which can clog the hair follicles. Microbiology and systemic inflammation represent two possible mechanisms by explaining how covad-19 infection induces telogen influenza influenza. Topical minoxidil is prescribed in 50% of our patients; There is no strong evidence that it is useful for TE. Teaching a naturalistic approach to self-limitation is an important part of governance. The hair eventually stops flowing and begins to grow again, but it can take up to 18 months for the hair follicles to return to their original state.
CV-19 has been linked to the development of autoimmune diseases and the development of new conditions. Alopecia areata (AA) has been linked to inflammation or quarantine anxiety and / or fear of infection. Some patients have been consulting with AA for a new outbreak in August 2020, with the disease progressing rapidly after the outbreak. Not all respond to local, internal, and / or diet treatments for 1-2 months.
The onset and severity of alopecia
It has been reported that some adults have hair loss after covide-19. Two months after the onset of CVD-19 symptoms, abnormal hair loss occurs during combing, which lasts for up to 6 months.
Approximately 20 percent of survivors of covad-19 are reported to have more severe hair loss. The subjects in the study, however, were too low to reach the conclusion of this association. TE is usually less than half the size of the head and lasts for about 6 months. Fallen hair is replaced by new and growing hair.
Tips and advice for hair loss

  • Patients should keep their hair clean and tidy (the tail of the horse should be constantly and thoroughly cleansed, rather than the scalp, oily or dry)
  • Take care of work habits (mental stress, outdoor physical activity, high stress should be avoided)
  • Diet control (should avoid excessive alcohol and smoking, but should include vitamins in the diet)
  • Avoid nocturnal activity and get a good night’s sleep (enough time for good quality sleep)
  • Topical Minoxidil 2% -5% 1 ml is recommended twice a day as first line treatments
    Incorporate essential amino acids, iron supplements.

Vitamin D3 deficiency in patients with alopecia
Outbreaks appear to be exacerbated during pregnancy and in children exposed to corticosteroids. [25(OH)D] High levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D and low levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D have been observed in patients suffering from hair loss. Therefore, it is recommended to increase vitamin D3.
