Now, once these are excluded, one may consider the diagnosis of telogen effluvium following PRP. This is usually temporary and transient, and can follow 'shock' to your system including events such as PRP to treat hair loss in the first place.
Your hair will re grow again with 3-5 months, and base line pics. at 6-7 months should show an improvement. Having said that, I am only giving advice on your one line of history- a full examination and history MUST be undertaken by your specialist PRP provider.
All the best

You should have the opposite effect from the PRP and your hair should be thickening. Please consult an expert in hair loss since there may be some other factor that is involved in your hair loss that needs to be addressed. Best, Dr. Green

Hair loss and itchiness after PRP
I would highly recommend a thorough medical evaluation with a good hair restoration specialist. At the very least it should include a good history, physical, dermoscopy and possibly a scalp biopsy. Furthermore lab work is advised. Was the itchiness present before the prp? Treatment and further recommendations are pending results of above.
PRP can produce some swelling and burning discomfort for a day or two. However, it is contra-indicated to treat with and-inflammatory meds as this will diminish the benefit of the PRP which produces an inflammatory response in the injected areas.
