About 2 weeks ago, I noticed that Elliott is losing quite a bit of his hair. He doesn’t have any noticeable thin spots. However, we I rub his head, I find upto a dozen hairs stuck between my fingers.
I’ve not said anything Elliott but we spoke with his pediatrician over the phone and he wants to see Elliott next week.
The amount to of hair he’s losing is not normal and is likely stress or nutrition related.
Ever since Elliott tree nut allergy surfaced, feeding him has become extremely difficult. I wouldn’t be surprised at all to find that he’s deficient in one of more areas. As for the stress theory, it makes sense as he’s under an insanely high out of stress.
I’ve been wondering if this is in someway tied to his inability to kick this sinus infection, even after 4 rounds of antibiotics?
Either way, lab work is in his immediate future. His pediatrician wants to coordinate with immunology and the ENT, so that any needed blood work can be done in one single draw.
I’m really worried about Elliott. He needs relief from everything going on around him..
Please keep Elliott in your thoughts and prayers.
