I am a female. After having shingles, I noticed one side of hairline has been receding. Can shingles cause hair loss?

Welcome to the forum.

I`m not too sure on this one,maybe someone else or a doctor will know.

Have you any pictures you can post of your hairloss in this area?

Thanks

Medicine on shingles can cause hair loss, but not likely just shingals.
