Can i use essvit biotin tablets for hair growth along with vitamin e capsules?

Patient: Sir can i use essvit biotin tablets for hair growth along with vitamin e capsules?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Biotin and vitamin E will both help for hair loss. However, it is first important to diagnose the type of hair l oss. Biotin will only help in certain cases called as telogen effluvium. This is a type of hair fall where excessive hairs are shed 3-6 months after a trigger like physical illness ( viral fever, typhoid, hepatitis,etc), surgery, crash dieting, weight loss, mental stress, anaemia and hypothyroidism.If you are having a hereditary pattern called male pattern hair loss, biotin will not be of much use.You could consult a dermatologist to determine the cause and treat appropriately.Hope this helps you.Take care.
