Hair Loss from Chemo

Asked by Nancy 1.86K Rep.

It has been many years since I have had any chemo. Before the chemo treatments I had very thick hair and after it was thin.

I am in my 60’s now and recently for the past month I have noticed my scalp feeling itchy and hair falling out. Is there any product on the market to help with thickening my hair, stop my scalp from itching and stop the hair from falling out.

    There are no guarantees when it comes to regrowing hair. My female patients in situations similar to yours have a lot of success with Viviscal tablets, taken twice a day. They are available on the Internet. In addition, to reduce the itching, a dandruff shampoo containing salicylic acid or any tar extract, used on alternate nights, by lathering for a minute, rinsing out, and lathering again for a minute, is usually very helpful for the itching.
