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?

Could it be Trichotillomania? In some young children it starts out as hair twirling as a soothing mechanism and progresses into pulling it out. This could explain hair loss if you aren't actually seeing the hair fall out when you comb or wash it. I'm not sure if this helps, but good luck.
