Hi my name is Heather and I have a 5 year old daughter named Zoe. She has recently began to lose her hair at what I think is at a rapid rate. She used to have full thick hair and now its so thin and frail. I have taken her to her pediatrician and she seems to think that Zoe is under stress and this is causing her to lose her hair. I think that it is more then stress. I believe that my daughter may be suffering from a form of alopecia. I have an appointment with a dermatologist next week and hope that I can get some answers soon. I'm really just looking for some support because while I know its not life threatening its so traumatic for her and me. All I can do is cry when she asks me why her hair keeps falling out. I'm lost so please help!
