No idea what’s happening here, but my little girl is going bald.
She had the standard newborn hair when she first arrived, which promptly vanished and was replaced by peach fuzz within two months. It stayed like that for awhile, but by earlier this year, she was growing it just fine.
And now, it’s simply vanishing. Almost completly gone from the front and top of her head. If you run your hand through what’s left, it just comes right out. We took her to the doc the other day, and he was baffled. She’s not pulling it out, and there doesn’t seem to be any environmental reason. It’s not coming out patchy like you see with some childhood afflictions. She’s growing normally otherwise, so there’s no indication that this is a side effect of something truly bad. She’s simply balding. Fricking odd.
Fortunately, the doc noted that there are indications of new growth appearing, so hopefully this’ll be a temporary thing. She had blood work done yesterday, so we should be hearing the results of that any time now. Fingers crossed.
Incidentally, she look familiar?
