Vitamin/hair loss: There are many vitamins but it is tough to know which is best. The online literature was not very helpful when I looked it up just now. Please go to your local Pharmacy and have the pharmacist point you in the right direction. The many bottles on the shelf all say how wonderful their product is but I would rather trust the Pharmacist. ...Read more

Does taking biotin vitamin for hair and nails break you out?

No: However, if you have a rash for more than 2 week or you're systemically sick or the rash is obviously dangerous-looking, get seen.

I've started taking folic acid forte with b complex vitamins and vit c will this increase my chance of getting pregnant or am i wasting money?

More complicated...: It won't help you get pregnant, but it may help you be healthy so you are better able to sustain a healthy pregnancy. I recommend taking a supplement with activated folate (folic acid) rather than Folic Acid for trying to get pregnant.

Telegen effluvium : This is the most likely explanation and probably relates to your illness or possibly Rx. Almost everything you read about food / vitamins and healthy hair online is made up silly stuff. It might be worth checking your thyroid hormone levels. Telegenic effluvium self-cures; a few uncommon forms of hair loss are more lasting. ...Read more
