Follow up on hair loss

Connie saw the pediatric dermatologist today for that hair loss he was experiencing a month or so ago. It took awhile to get an appt. and of course wouldn't you know that by the time the appt. rolled around we aren't seeing it much, if at all. It's certainly nothing like it was in the middle of May. She asked some background questions and determined that the cause of the hair loss was likely the body's reaction to a stressful event such as an illness several months prior. He did have Mono and croup and various other illnesses over the winter so that makes sense. The term for it is Telogen Effluvium. No more follow-ups are required. He was, as always, a good boy and very cute at the appointment.
