Chronic telogen effluvium
Certainly you can try minoxidil to help treat chronic telogen effluvium but the best treatment is to remove the stressor/trigger.
Minoxidil and telogen effluvium
Yes, the mechanism of action for minoxidil is such that with consistent use of at least 4-6 months, it will encourage follicular growth.

Sure you can start Minoxidil, but a combination approach will give you better results. I recommend a consultation with a hair loss expert to go over your condition and options. PRP and progesterone injections are also good options and/or hair transplantation. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
