Hi do other people find their hair is thinning,falling out, receding,getting into terribly poor condition.
Mine is unrecognisable from before the bite, just no body, texture, very thin
Is it due to Lyme, the pressure on the body from it etc? It's minor compared to the neuro stuff but still difficult to deal with!
I am wary of using very perfumed etc cleaners. I'd love to know of anything to improve the condition of it.

Yes! I lost about half of my hair. The loss has slowed down tremendously since I began taking antibiotics, so I assume it is caused by Lyme and Co.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to improve condition. Would be wonderful if someone out there has suggestions.

I've been dealing with thinning hair from thyroid issues for over a decade, so be sure and have that checked out. It did get worse with lyme.

The b vitamins are supposed to help, but really everything you do to boost your immune system, which you should be doing for treating lyme, would help too.

For years I noticed I lose large amounts of hair in the shower. Now that I've been in treatment for about a year I've noticed less and less in the shower. Coincidence? I think not. It might not be lyme but a co-infection. Either way it sucks.

Collagen will help a lot.

Gelatin is very inexpensive and your hair will get so much better and your nails and skin too.
