For the past three months I have telogen effluvium. Anything to speed up the recovery?

In brief: Telogen effluvium

Because telogen effluvium is a reactive process, which resolves spontaneously, treatment usually is limited to reassurance.
Any reversible cause of hair shedding, such as poor diet, iron deficiency, hypothyroidism, or medication use, should be corrected. In our clinic we use B12 shots once a month which helps.
