Telogen Effluvium Treatments

Telogen effluvium is a common type of alopecia that causes diffuse hair loss in individuals that have experienced a recent stressful event.

Stress comes in many forms and a stressful event can sometimes lead to hair loss. Some examples of stressors that may cause telogen effluvium to include:

  • Death of a loved one
  • Personal or family conflict
  • Work-related stress
  • Illness or hospital stay
  • Childbirth
  • Certain medications

This condition is typically reversible over a 6-18 month time period assuming the stressful event has ended and is not recurrent.

Since other conditions can cause similar hair loss, it is important to get a proper diagnosis as not to slow the healing process.
