Hair Loss – Causes of Hair Loss in Children
What causes hair loss? Although hair loss can be blamed on your mom and dad (i.e., genetics) there are other causespreventable onesthat include nutritional deficiency, infection, prescription drugs, chemical hair products, and even emotional stress. Taking care of these, while focusing on ways to stimulate growth, should keep you well ahead of the pack in your hair-loss-prevention quest. Eat more fish Not only are fish loaded with protein and minerals, but theyre also an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D. Both nutrients have been linked to preventing hair loss in chemotherapy patients. That holding true for healthy men hasnt really been studied, but both nutrients offer a host of other health benefits so there should be nothing stopping you from including more fish in your diet. Keep your iron levels in check Iron-deficiency anemia, which is more common in women, is a well-known cause of unexpected hair loss, but the loss may be so slight that you barely notice it.

Hair Loss One of the classic causes of hair loss in children that many people think about is hair loss associated with childhood cancer . Although this can definitely cause hair loss, it is usually the cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation (anagen effluvium), that causes the hair loss and not the cancer itself. Telogen effluvium is another classic cause of hair loss in children, but this condition is often poorly understood by parents. Children with telogen effluvium have often had a recent illness, typically with a high fever, surgery, sudden weight loss, or even an emotional stress, and then suddenly lose a lot of hair about six weeks to three months later. Children with telogen effluvium continue to lose hair, often in large clumps for a few weeks or months, to the point that their hair may be noticeably thin.
