I have Bb and Babesia and probably Ehrlica. I'm treating Lyme with Cats Claw and Banderol and Babesia with Artemisinin, Sida Acuta and Red Root but my hair is thinning and is of very poor quality. Does anyone else have this problem?

I've met many many people that have this. Seems more prevalent in women or maybe it's just that guys with lyme are already bald or just don't have as much hair, just in my experience. Very common. I think you'll get answer of biotin. I do know it can get better.

Thanks Droid. I've started taking Biotin and hope to see some results. Do you have any idea of how much a person should take?

Nioxin shampoo helps. It's pricey but worth it.

The cheapest I've found it is at the beauty salon inside Walmart Supercenter.

It did take a few months to see a difference.

I definitely experienced this--hair not just thinning but actually coming out. Plus, I'm a redhead, and when I was just starting treatment, my hair color seemed to drain.

I tried OTC remedies but nothing really seemed to help. I did stick with the biotin.

The thing is that as I got better, this symptom was one of the first things to improve. Now my hair is as thick as it once was and has color and a lot of shine again. It just took time and healing.

I've experienced this too. I've always had SUPER thick hair, and over the past 3 years or so.....

it seems like at least half has fallen out. What's left is thin and limp and lifeless.

I plan to see a dermatologist about this.

My regular doc (not LLMD) recommended 3,000 - 5,000 of biotin a day, but I have yet to take it.

I hope you can get some answers! Wishing you health!

Some drugs can do this.. I know Diflucan did it to me.

Also .. low thyroid can do it.

Thanks everyone. It's nice to know I'm not alone. I've started taking 10,000 mcg Biotin but not yet seeing improvement. I hope you all have improved health.
