Hair loss: Can COVID-19 cause hair loss?


Can COVID-19 cause hair loss?

At present, hair loss is not considered a symptom of coronavirus by the World Health Organisation or the NHS.

However, the Indiana University study and complaints of survivors identifies hair loss as a potential long-term symptom.

Many COVID-19 survivors have lost some hair after recovering, but the is often down to the psychological effects of contracting the disease.

Some experts have said that suffering from coronavirus could trigger the stress hormone cortisol to be released.

Cortisol can signal the hair follicles to shift from the growth phase into a transition phase causing your hair to fall out.
