Dear doctor, Please, what causes hair loss in babies?
Some babies have this as a result of underlying scalp conditions which must be treated. There is really no reason for the hair loss and it will just grow back on its own. You need to be careful not to use any products that will worsen the hair loss. It is better to see your Paediatrician or Dermatologist first"
