Just shaved my 4 months old gal's hair coz her hair dropping out in patches and super ugly..Imagine our dismay when we found that she has a spot at the front of her head that is completely bald!
When I say completely, I mean COMPLETELY. No hair coming out, no roots, not even a hole for the hair to come out of the scalp. Seems as if hair will not grow in that area at all! And its not coz of uneven shaving of hair or anything like that! Take photo also can see one hole in front.
She has history of cradle cap. Not sure if that's the cause. Any tips or remedies?
Hi my girl of 3 month plus also have this problem now. She got white spot some without hair but her is all behind . I consult my pediatrician she say is mild encezma but I doubt so cos will be itchy and red but hers is not . My pediatrician also give me cream to apply and ask me to put moisteriser often. May I knw what cream you are using and took how long to cure it? Will the white spot change back to her original skin colour? What has caused the fungus?
Sorry mummies, I forgot what cream I used cos it's a long time(6 years ago). I remember the first time when i notice, my dad actually sugguest we used this home remedy...crush garlic mixed with vasoline and apply on baby's head(the affected area) 2 times a day. I did that in the beginning instead of bring her to see a doc and have apply for a week before i start to see the roots of hair. But I could stand my baby smelling like garlic so I brought her to see a doc after that. The clinic I went to is Dawson clinic. They are very good with skin problems.
