i can see the sympotms of conjunctivitis n hairfall,itchy scalo loss of her appetietive and tirednes too.

i have stared with biotin,just wanted to know hoew long it is to be given.

what are natural ways to reat biotin defeciency

ANSWER: Biotin is found in many foods such as poultry, egg yolks, salmon, organ meat, tuna and many more. Most relatively healthy diets contain adequate biotin. If she truly is biotin deficient she should be monitored by a health care professional. It is important to determine if there is an underlying disorder causing biotin deficiency such as candidiasis albicans or a condition that may be inhibiting absorption of biotin. The symptoms you describe can be symptoms of other conditions as well. It is important to get an accurate diagnosis if possible. Biotin supplements and eating foods high in biotin may help somewhat but they will not cure the problem unless biotin deficiency is the single cause of her hair loss.

ANSWER: If she is losing her hair in clumps she may have an autoimmune disorder called alopecia areata, especially if the hair loss results in bald patches. Biotin deficiency is rare. Certain conditions can make it difficult to absorb or metabolize biotin. In these cases supplemental biotin usually helps the person maintain adequate biotin. Has she been tested for iron/ferritin deficiency? It is very important to identity and treat the underlying disorders, especially since she has other symptoms such as tiredness.

It is usually not possible to diagnose hair loss disorder through a photograph. My view of the photo does not show any obvious signs of hair loss. There is a type of hair loss called loose anagen syndrome that mostly affects young girls. With this condition a high percentage of hairs (over 50%) are not properly anchored in the follicle. Because of this they can easily and painlessly be extracted from the follicle. Because the hairs fall during the growing (anagen) phase, the fallen will not have the typical un-pigmented bulb at the root end. There may be very tiny pigmented bulb or no bulb at all. This condition often improves with age.
If biotin-deficiency is confirmed, supplementing often helps.

Female hair loss is my main focus. Women today are very susceptible to several types of hair loss including telogen effluvium, alopecia areata, and androgenetic alopecia. I can answer questions about the causes and types of female hair loss. I can share information about natural holistic remedies to improve female hair loss conditions.


My interest in female hair loss sprung from my own experience with extensive hair loss. Determined to grow my hair back, I diligently studied every piece of information I could find on the biology of hair growth. After successfully re-growing my hair with safe and effective natural products, I felt compelled to learn more and to share this information with other women. I am experienced in blending custom hair loss formulas. I am also experienced in writing about female hair loss issues.

My hair loss information has been included in The Truth about Womens Hair Loss by Spencer Kobren, Naturally Healthy Skin by Stephanie Tourles, Alternative Healing by Bill Gottleib and Natural Health Magazine. I am the author of several books on hair loss.

I am a certified aromatherapist specializing in formulas for scalp and hair conditions.
