Hair Loss/B 12 for TE

Question
Hi,
I have patients asking about B12 for TE but I can not find it in the literature. Can you please tell me what you are basing your treatment on? Thank you very much.

Answer
I joined this dermatology practice in 1993 and the doctors in the practice had been using B12 for years. They said they heard it at a Derm meeting. The only thing I can tell you is that it works. 1 cc every month for 3-6 months.  I just had a patient in today for her B12 shot. She was very excited as her telogen effluvium has decreased. She came in for her third shot.
