Hello, I want to ask, my daughter is 3 years old, her hair has always fallen out a lot for the past few months, why is that? Even though it wasn’t like this before.

Hello Megadibah, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Hair loss in children can be caused by many possibilities, the following are some of them:

fungal infection of the scalp (tinea capitis) alopecia areata telogen efflufium, namely hair loss that occurs after stress, for example after experiencing high fever, post-surgery, severe emotional stress (such as death of a loved one), etc. for example there is trichotillomania hypothyroidism (children pull out their own hair)

If indeed your child's hair falls out to reveal the bald part of the child's head, you should bring your child to consult the Pediatrician first. The pediatrician will conduct a physical examination on your child to determine the possible cause of your child's hair loss. If necessary, your pediatrician can also refer to a dermatologist for further evaluation and management.

For now a few things you can do:

Keep your child's head clean, but don't wash your child's hair too often. Use a gentle shampoo for children's heads. Avoid too strong pigtails. Provide complete nutritious food for children. If you see children pulling their hair often, try to prevent your child from doing it.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
