Antibiotics and hair loss

We understand that many people suffer from hair loss and there are many different factors that can cause this problem. Antibiotics are a type of medicine used to fight infections and diseases and work by killing the bacteria that cause the infection. But sometimes antibiotics can also kill the good bacteria found in our body. These good bacteria help keep our body healthy and promote hair growth.

A rare side effect of taking antibiotics is hair loss, the antibiotics do not attack the hair indirectly but disrupt the body's natural balance of bacteria and thus hair loss can occur in some people. If you experience hair loss after using antibiotics, you should consult your doctor to first rule out other causes of your hair loss, as well as other types of medication that can also cause this side effect and should be ruled out before suspecting the antibiotic. It is important to note that not all types of antibiotics cause hair loss.

In summary, the use of antibiotics can cause hair loss by killing the good bacteria present in our body. It is important to note that this does not apply to all types of antibiotics and it is important to talk to your doctor if you experience hair loss while taking antibiotics.
