Is Stress from Coronavirus Causing Hair Loss?
The coronavirus pandemic has changed our world in unforeseeable ways and affected society’s collective mental health. Balancing work and home life, managing finances, and worrying about your family’s health adds up and causes tons of stress. This stress more than likely has led to some health problems, such as hair loss.
The Miami Herald reported that hair loss is a common side effect of stress. The Herald also reported an increase in dermatologists’ patients complaining of finding clumps of hair on their pillows because of stress related to the virus. But many people often get even more stressed about their health when they notice hair loss, which further deteriorates their mental health, which then leads to even more hair loss. Is there a way out of the cycle?
What to do if you are stressed
In fact, so many people are worried about the coronavirus that the Centers for Disease Control released a guideline to help people manage their stress levels.
The CDC recommends:
- Finding time to disconnect from the news and coronavirus updates
- Getting plenty of sleep and exercising (safely!) outdoors
- Connecting with loved ones
- Informing yourself about where and how to get treatment in the event of illness
It’s normal to lose up to 150 strands of hair per day, but if you believe you’re losing more than that, you might want to consult your doctor.
