My hair is suddenly falling our in chunks! Any idea why?
I'm on tindamax, batrim ds and artemisinin. I mean several hand fills a day. It's freaking me out. Is it the drugs or the disease??

It's both. Babesia makes my hair fall out. Herxing makes it worse.

You're on a good Babs' program. Keep going. The hair grows back.

My hair has been thinning out for the past year or so. I don't know why. My doc noticed it first.

I can easily grow a mustache or beard but the top of my head is seriously thinning.

Maybe I should get a discount on haircuts!

Our daughter had this hair loss while on Tindamax and it stopped when she stopped taking the drug.

My wife experienced serious hair thinning while she had lyme. After treatment it stopped thinning, but it never really got thicker again.

Mine falls out more when I back off my Lugols
Maybe iodine would help

Nioxin shampoo helped me. You have to use it for a while to see results tho'.

I also have thinning on both sides at top. Lyme messes with just about every function. Also noted mt eyebrows and pubic areas have thinned. Weird, huh?
