I have tinea capacitis fungus and some of my hair is gone, it has been prescribed by pantogar also by the doctor but how come it hasn’t grown yet?
Hello! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Tinea capitis is a fungal infection of the scalp and head hair. The main treatment for tinea capitis is antifungal drugs, which can be in the form of oral medication, shampoo, or both. This drug is given to kill the fungus and prevent the spread of fungal infections to other parts of the scalp. Hair will not grow until the yeast infection is treated even if you take the medicine you mentioned. The drug you mentioned can help hair growth after the fungal infection is resolved. Make sure you use an antifungal drug that is given in accordance with the number of days the doctor recommends that a yeast infection be completely treated. If the yeast infection is severe enough, maybe not all of your hair can grow back completely. You can ask this possibility from the doctor who examined you. You can return to the doctor's control if after your antifungal wear out, your hair is still not growing or there are symptoms on your scalp. Remember that this disease is contagious. Avoid sharing combs, hats, pillows and towels with other people. This disease can also be transmitted from animals. You need to keep your pet clean so you don't experience this again. If your pet experiences symptoms similar to yours, take your animal to the vet immediately. Wash your hair regularly, especially after getting a haircut.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
