Hair loss problem
Dear Doc
I have 2 boys the one is 4 and the other 2. Since I had these two boys I have experienced severe hair loss. My hair is now thin and you can see the skin under the hair. It looks awful and the hair still falls out everyday in bunches. I am scared that I will loose all my hair and go bold. Is there any shampoo or vitamines that is available over the counter that will help stop the hair loss and let the hair grow out thicker? Must I speak to my doc to do tests, please help!
