Hair Falling Out After Typhoid Shot

I had taken a typhoid vaccine 20 days ago. Now my hair is falling so much. What should I do now? Which foods should I eat now?

Please call your doctor immediately and explain your problem. Hair thinning is a possible side effect of contracting typhoid fever but may or may not be a result of a vaccination. There could possibly be another unrelated reason but your doctor will be able to help you.

I agree that you should contact your doctor right away. Since it is the weekend and that may not be possible I would suggest that you visit your pharmacist and see what they have to say. They should be able to give you some quick advice as to whether this constitutes an emergency situation.


I have heard that sometimes things like this "mimic" the disease and goes away after a short time. But please seek expert advise so you can be sure everything is okay.

I had a problem with my thyroid and started losing my hair - my doctor advised me to take 1000 to 5000mcg of Biotin daily. I did not see results right away but can now say (years later) that my hair and nails are in great condition. (I am 80 years old.) Biotin is inexpensive so maybe you could give it a try when you are feeling better.

Re has good information about Biotin but advises that you should discuss taking it with your doctor because of possible problems if you have other medical conditions and also possible interactions with drugs you are taking.


I hope that you have called your doctor already. If you are interested in Biotin and any other supplement, please discuss this with your doctor.
