Hair loss in children

Childhood alopecia or child hair loss is generally in pediatric dermatology practice. The specific reasons for hair loss in children sometimes have multiple causes, and there are different types of alopecia.

Hair loss in children

Upon review, a total of 345 records were broken up into different categories. With the average age at just over a year old, just slightly over half of the children analyzed were males, and based on percentages, this was the type of alopecia found:

The most common diagnoses in descending order: alopecia areata, (36.8%), tineacapitis, (21%), nevus sebaceous (13.2%), and telogen effluvium (8.7%).

Based on age, it was found that in newborns, the most common causes were aplasia cutis and nevus sebaceous. In children in pre-school and school children, the principal causes were nevus sebaceous, alopecia areata and tineacapitis.

Trichotillomania was also significant in school children. It is believe to be rooted in nutrition related circumstances. In adolescents, nevus sebaceous, alopecia areata and telogen effluvium were the most frequent diagnoses. Alopecia areata was statistically associated with autoimmune disease, thyroid disease, nail disorder, psychiatric disease, and Down's syndrome. The most common etiological agent in tineacapitis was M. canis (86.6%). Trichotillomania was also statistically associated to psychiatric disorders.

Alopecia areata usually develops from one to three months at presentation. Usually multiple patches of hair loss with no scales or erythema and with normal scalp appearance, and in some cases diffuse hair loss at the time of the diagnosis. Sometimes there is a family history such as brothers or sisters with the same complaint. My observation is that supporting digestion and boosting glutathione is useful in the treatment of alopecia areata.

Telogen effluvium, which occurs as diffuse non-scarring alopecia characterized by the shedding of hair resulting from the early entry of hair in the telogen phase, occurred in 37 children (17.6%). On average this develops at 8 years of age and with duration of 4-6 months before diagnosis. Telogen effluvium's most common cause was the frequent illnesses and high-grade fever that preceded the hair loss by two to three months, followed by iron deficiency anemia.

When in doubt on treatment, it never hurts to support digestion, determining allergies, opt for non-irritating shampoos. In cases with an "autoimmune component" using herbs that support the inflammation response can prevent over activity. A stronger immune system results in less inflammation, not more.

Last but certainly, not least many of these "autoimmune" type hair loss cases involve a thyroid problem. Consider the following topical and internals.
