Please please help me. I have MS and am not on any trials for MS just on an antidepressant and Valium. I have profuse hair loss and have tried many products but have had no luck. I am wearing a wig now. Can you suggest help for me as am at my wits end and am very depressed.
Hair loss is not something that is related to MS directly. We usually send patients to a dermatologist to look for the root cause. There are some other autoimmune conditions that can lead to this, but a dermatologist can help sort it out efficiently.
