Hello Ladies! My son Zechariah is 17 mths old and is almost bald in the top of his head and has been continuing to loose hair. It's been over 6 weeks and his hair hasn't grown back. I've taken him to the doctor and ER and was told he is too young to say it is alopecia but meanwhile I am watching him loose more hair!! Any suggestions?

Thank you. I made him an appointment to see a dermatologist 4 August 20th I hope by then he isn't completely bald. It really hurts to watch this happen and nothing I can do.

I think this is more common than many think of. I know of several people that have said their children were born with lots of hair then lost it later and were 'bald' for months. If you are really concerned, could they check his blood for any missing nutrients?
