Depends on cause...: One's primary care doctor can check for medical causes. If none are found, then one can see a dermatologist, especially one specializing in hair restoration (some treatments: minoxidil, etc, ...). Medical causes may include: hormonal problems (low thyroid), seborrhea, alopecia areata, stressful illness. Other causes: genetic male/female pattern baldness, telogen effluvium.

See answer: Do you mean hair falling out? This can be from a thyroid problem or from a nutritional deficiency on occasion. In those cases, correcting the underlying problem is the treatment. It can also be from an autoimmune disorder, which is harder to treat. Sometimes hair can fall out after an illness, weight loss or pregnancy. In those cases it will usually correct itself with time.

Telogen Effluvium: Telogen effluvium is a form of nonscarring alopecia characterized by diffuse hair shedding, often with an acute onset. A chronic form with a more insidious onset and a longer duration also exists.Telogen effluvium is a reactive process caused by a metabolic or hormonal stress or by medications. Generally, recovery is spontaneous and occurs within 6 months.In our clinic we treat this with B12 shots.
