Corona Virus and Hair Loss

The corona virus can do a little more indirect damage than you thought. Doctors are seeing more patients with hair loss. This rings true for both the people who were asymptomatic and the people who have recovered. It’s even true in a broader sense for people not infected. This is because the hair loss is not from the virus directly, but the stress the body goes through fighting it off. As for people who have never contracted it, times are tough. With an economic recession, financial strain and deaths of family members, in addition to it being an election year, stress can really take a toll on your body. Life is hard, but no matter what happens, the sun will rise. The strongest of people ask for help, especially if you’re symptomatic.
