Note for people who've had it: my colleague's hairdresser has noticed that quite a few clients have had loads of hair fall out a few months after infection, even with very mild cases.

Was on the news earlier that hairdressers are needing to do patch tests for regular customers for hair dying as their skin is behaving different to the dye after having covid.

I went to a dermatologist yesterday for exactly this reason. Have lots of bald patches where my hair has been falling out. Had it all cut short recently to help as when I was brushing it when longer it was just coming out in clumps..having major issues with my scalp too

That's interesting about changes to hair. I cut my fringe when I first got Covid and it's hardly grown at all since then. I cut it quite short and I need it to get a bit longer before I go back to the hairdressers!

I was intrigued by this but it seems that hair loss a while after illness a known phenomenon, so unlikely to be Covid-specific -
