Get checked: You need to get checked and get some lab work done to make sure your Iron and thyroid levels are within normal. Depression can cause hair fall too and you need to be screened for it. Seeing a dermatologist will help plus they can take a small pinch of the scalp send it to the lab to check for things like fungal and bacterial infections which may cause hair fall
