Toddler Hair Loss Due to Change of Country

My daughter and I are currently visiting in Mexico, it has been 2 months and we are staying here for 6 months, and ever since we got here she has been loosing a lot of hair. She even has a bald spot on the side of her head. and you can see her scalp when i put it up in a pony tail. I went to the doctor and they did say that it was cause of the water here, but that was it. So was wondering if anybody knows of anything i could do, thanks

  • I'd say switch her to imported bottled water, like Evian or something.

  • Hmm...that is strange..yeah I would buy water to bathe atleast for now she could be stressing in her own little way bc of the change in living. Hope her hair grows all back ;)

  • Oh no it's not the water she drinks, it's the water that comes out of the shower head. SOrry I forgot to mention that
