Is Hair Loss from Mold Permanent?

I know you said in another post that mold can possibly lead to hair loss; however I am wondering whether such an issue may be reversed. If you do experience hair loss as a side effect from over exposure to mold, will the hair return once the mold is removed? Or is the loss permanent? Thank you for your time.

Diseases like ringworm (a mold) can be treated successfully unless the presence of disease is a complication of a compromised immune system (like from HIV). In most cases, the hair grows back once the mold/fungus is successfully treated.

  1. I was exposed to mold and lost a lot of hair and keep losing it. It is not regrowing and I have been out of it for a couple of years now. I did not get ringworm…hair loss caused by something systemic. Anyway, I am sorry to say I am not sure I agree with you…I am not sure the hair regrows. I have been told by doc after doc all my hair won’t fall out. That it will regrow after a year of leaving the mold. Wrong and wrong!
