My son is 6 and is losing his hair at the bottom and 2 spots near the crown. We have been to his Pediatrician, who referred us to a Dermatologist, who is now sending us to a Pediatric Dermatologist. So far, we have been told that it is most likely Alopecia, but not certain as to what extreme. Our appt. at the Childrens Hospital is not until October 20. Is there anything we can do to treat this before then? What can we expect when we go to the specialist? Is this a permanent thing with his hair and will the rest fall out before it is over? Thank you.
