Health Tip: Coping With Hair Loss

Seek your doctor's help

(HealthDay News) -- If you're losing your hair, you may be able to slow the tide.

The American Academy of Dermatology suggests:

  • Use caution in washing, drying and styling your hair.
  • Certain medications can trigger hair loss. Don't stop taking any medication. Instead, talk to your dermatologist about whether there are alternatives.
  • Hair loss can be temporary. Factors such as just having given birth, illness or stress may be at play. Speak to your doctor about this possibility.
