While normally the condition is not serious, it can have an effect on a patient’s wellbeing and confidence.
Those who suffer with Telogen Effluvium will most likely never lose all their hair, however the condition can develop fairly rapidly. At times, the thinning of the hair follicles become noticeable perhaps a month or two after the shock occurred. If the shock that caused the problem is short lived, then the hair follicles will return to normal and start producing new hair fairly quickly.
Telogen Effluvium usually only lasts a few months at most, and therefore most sufferers can expect their normal hair density to return within a year.
