What do I do? My 6 yr old ds has a receding hair line? HELP

He has always had a hairy back,thick like a grown man. He has behavioral problems and now his hair is starting to recede,like a middle age man. I am wondering if he could have more testorone than he should? Does that sound right? What should I do? What sort of specialist could help him?

  • His pediatrician can do blood tests to check to make sure his hormone levels are okay.

  • I would take him first to his pediatrician for basic bloodwork and to discuss a referral to a pediatric endocrinologist for further evaluations.
