BSF - hair loss/alopecia
ASK THE EXPERT - BSF and talkhealth teamed up to offer our community the opportunity to put their hair loss and alopecia questions to our panel of dermatology experts. Dr Sharon Wong, Dr Anton Alexandroff and Dr Kapil Bhargava kindly joined us to give advice on coping with hair loss, treatments available and tips on self-management. The clinic is now closed but you can view the questions and answers here.
British Skin Foundation (BSF) is the only UK charity dedicated to raising funds for all types of skin disease research including skin cancer. Visit the British Skin Foundation charity page to find out more.
