Covid: actress Alyssa Milano reveals hair loss caused by disease
Extensive hair loss appears to be an emerging symptom in long-term Covid-19 patients, as evidenced by a video posted by American actress Alyssa Milano.
We knew the loss of smell and taste, or even itchiness. Other symptoms associated with the Sars-CoV-2 coronavirus infection are gradually emerging: persistent hiccups and hair loss, the latter mainly in people who have been battling the disease for several months.
As demonstrated by the American actress Alyssa Milano, who wanted to alert her fans about this "adverse effect" linked to Covid-19, so that they continue to scrupulously respect the barrier gestures.
This Sunday, August 9, the former star of the Charmed series shared a video on Twitter and Instagram where she combs her hair with wet hair. With just a few brush strokes, you are removing a handful of hair. Her skull also appears through her hair in some places. "I thought I could show you what COVID-19 is doing to your hair. Take this seriously," he said. "Put on a mask", concluded the star, visibly morally affected by this important alopecia.
On August 9, Alyssa Mylano also shared a photo with a mask of herself, where she wrote that she has been ill with Covid-19 since April. "I still have a lot of symptoms. I am what they call a 'long carrier' (literally 'long carrier' means someone who suffers from a long-lasting form of Covid-19). Last night my chest felt very heavy. I went to the emergency room alone to make sure it wasn't a blood clot. Fortunately it wasn't. This virus sucks. Take this seriously, "said the 47-year-old actress.
She also shared a photo of herself in April, while on life support, on August 7. She said in legend that she had never been so ill and had the impression that an elephant was sitting on her chest. The star said she donated her blood plasma in hopes of saving someone's life.
