Hello all, I was wondering if anyones child has had bald spots on their childs head and I wanted to comment that my daughter is starting to lose alot of hair when I brush it..... it seems to me way more than the average would be for a child. She has a good head of hair but is losing more than I think she should for a child that young. Last night when I was going through her head to put topicals on I found a bald spot about the size of a pencil eraser, maybe I shouldn't panic but it is very alarming for me as a mom....... anyone have any insight? She is only on topicals and she does have hypothyroidism. Her scalp is about moderate to severe along the lines of involvement. Her ears are full of it and she has inverse in groin, under arm, and a huge place on her knee, as well as all of her fingernails and some places around her eyes.
