: A good friend of mine is 21. She is currently in the hospital for a CF exacerbation. She is on the same antibiotics and medications as she has always benn.... though this time she is expieriencing hair loss. the doctors are not too sure what it is from... Was wondering if anyone else has had any expieriences with this.... Thanks ---> Danielle
Yes! My daughter is 20 and has CF. She experienced hair loss for about 3 months,then the problem went away.We are sure that stress was the cause.The stress was caused by worry about her condition. Since then she has looked after herself and exercised every day.She feels more confident about looking after herself. It did not clear up immediately,rather it took several weeks until the loss was not noticed any more.It also took 2-3 months to develop after the stressful event.I am not saying that this is the cause of your friend's hair loss,only that this should be considered.I wish her luck.
