Good hair care: There are many simple steps to take if you are losing your hair. Hopefully, it is only because of your family genetics. Try, over the counter Minoxidil (rogaine) 2 x each day, take biotin (a vitamin part of vit b complex) 5000 units each day, wash with a mild shampoo and use conditioner, do not brush your hair or use chemicals or hot heat. Blow drying is ok with low or cool settings.

Hair issues: Thinning hair or hair falling out can be caused by several conditions, including but not limited to thyroid disorders, stress, or scalp infections to name a few. Since you have dandruff, there may be an underlying scalp infection, so best to see a dr. For an evaluation and treatment. Good luck to you.

Hygiene, antibiotics: Depends upon the type of organism. If bacterial there are effective antibiotics. If viral hygiene is most important. If herpes, there is a good antiviral. Your ophthalmologist can evaluate your eye and sort this out.

I am 38 f obese with fatty liver. I have lost 42 lbs since march . My hair is falling out. Could this be a sign of cirrhosis?

Probably not: Cirrhosis is not usually associated with hair loss.Any time there is a rapid reduction in weight or any kind of illness then we can see hair loss increase for several months. This type of hair loss comes back so not to worry. Good luck on your weight loss.
