Same for my daughter

Technical name for balding is alopecia... Maybe try googling some info on it. I'd say it could be because of a deficiency causing her integumentary (hair, skin, nails) system to not be healthy... Or some times hair follicles just die

This could be a b12 deficiency

Please get it checked, b12 is no joke I'm still recovering after 2 years. You can go blind and lose your ability to walk

You want them to check for thyroid antibodies not only TSH

My 4th grader developed a nervous habit of pulling his hair out at the crown because it wouldn’t lay down. Could this be the case here ?

It could be a nervous tick. Or she could have just gotten it stuck on something playing. Especially if you didn't notice it this morning

I two bald spots that kept getting bigger was due to stress after the lose of my father, I used rosemary essential oil couple drops in my shampoo when washing my hair, massage the area when shampooing to bring blood flow to the spot. My hair is growing back.

I got those round bald patches from time to time in my 20's.. Also.. The patch was soo smooth ..
The hair would grow back.. But.. After a few yrs.. There will be a patch again.. Sometimes the same spot.. Sometimes a diff spot..
They could not find out why it happen.. Except maybe stress on the brain.. Was their answer..

She might secretly be plucking out her hairs. It can become a habit very easily.

My daughter went thru this... Took her to the Dr and they tested her to make sure nothing serious... Tests came back good ... They said that kids hair follicles go thru a resting stage and this happens .... My daughters was alot worse than this and it finally grew back

Stress did it for me or r.n.worm if u have pets

That is from STRESS.

Bev English

I had one but it’s because I used to rub my hair on the same spot all the time. I tried some home remedies like putting aloe Vera when I went to sleep but I got lazy and only did it a couple of times. It’s really Just a matter of letting the hair grow out and having her not touch her Head. Also avoid any ponytails when her Hair is wet .

When I was young I had that...... Stress induced psoriasis of scalp. Fast forward 25 yrs. My daughter did same thing. Get to bottom of stress and be supportive

Is she vaccinated? Alopecia is a common adverse reaction to vaccines.

Marie English

She has alopecia. The hair comes out in certain parts of the head in clumps. Get her checked out.

You mean alopecia areata. It does look like that, but that might not be what it is.. At this point, it could be a few different things.

Bob Frazier 3 years

Bob Frazier this is why I said to get her checked. There are different types of alopecia if that is what it is. They will not know until they take some tests and blood work to find out what is the real issue at hand.

Natasha Reynolds 3 years

alopecia is just the term for baldness. Alopecia areata, alopecia totalis, and alopecia universalis are something completely different....

Bob Frazier 3 years

I had a friend who’s son had this as an adverse reaction to his vaccines.

This may be just traction alopecia. My daughter had this where I pulled her hair into a tight ponie tail daily. It grew back. Definitely get it checked out, but if it is where you are putting tension on her scalp, it's probably... Traction Alopecia. "It differs from other types of Alopecia in that it is usually caused directly by the actions of the individual which result in excessive tension on the hair and breakage. Certain hair styles, such as braiding and tight ponytails are common causes of Traction Alopecia. It can also be caused by repeated treatments with chemicals, such as hair colouring and bleaching."

I had this when I was young a few spots around my head during high school sophomore year. Went to the dermatologist they don’t test for it or have a cure ... They gave me a sample of steroids, used them and the hair came back a little but, it was from stress, I had always been very nervous and anxious person when it came to school especially during tests but I remember not being able to eat and feeling sick to my stomach first hours of school. My hair has all grown back now that I have controlled my nerves by exercising and eating vegan diet manly most of the time. I hope your daughters hair grows back... I found an organic shampoo I haven’t tried but it’s supposed to help balding spots so hair can re grow. Alopecia has different levels and freaking out is bad, being stressed can cause it... İt can re grow or it may not and it can be seasonal falling out of the hair. Look at http://organigrowhairco.com/

Is she in medication? Some drugs can cause that and make sure she is not stressed. Know the root cause and deal with it. Then use aloe Vera gel to grow The hair

She didn’t happen to get a comb or something stuck in her hair? My daughter did this when she was like 3 and then ripped the comb out before I could get to her. It did eventually grow back!! Thankfully!!

Wash your hair with pine tart soap. Yes it’s stinks and will make your hair like it’s needs more r.n.ing. Then after towel drying use that soap to rub in the bold spot. Hair will grow back. Took about a month my nieces hair to grow out. It’s caused by stress

Svetlana Lindsey

You can find that soap at natural stores

Go see a doctor. It's crazy all these people on here "diagnosing" stuff from pictures and they have no medical degree.

My daughter has this. There’s very tiny hairs in there. Not sure what it could be but we also do lots of different hair styles with tons of ponytails.

Parasites can do this...

OCD can do this too. Does she have hair with folicles in her bedding or on her clothes at all? Don't ask her, if she is even aware of it, she might deny it, because OCD people sometimes think they "need" this like sucking a thumb. Doctors easily forget about OCD issues when looking at this kind of thing. So just think about this possibility.
