I have identical twin daughters who turned 3 in January. One of them plays with her hair, but doesn't pull it out. Her hair is falling out. I find it EVERYWHERE! Sometimes in big clumps. It's very concerning. The doctor gave us some medicine after we saw what looked like cradle cap on her scalp. It was a shampoo to wash her hair with a few times a week. We also got a cream to use. The cradle cap stuff has since went away, but her hair is still falling out. She is super thin on top, kind of like i've seen some elderly ladies. Ugh. Now we have to do bloodwork on her thyroid and see if there are any problems there. She broke her leg back in September last year and we have read that hairloss can come about 6mo after a traumatic event. I don't know if that would count and its frustrating that if that is what is happening, we really can't be sure. Curious if any one has had this problem? I'm worried what it could be if it isn't the thyroid.
