Why is my son losing hair and having pimples on his head?
Q: My son is 3 months old. He has very tiny pimples on his head, his hair is also falling. His skin has become very dry where there are tiny pimples and the colour of skin has become blackish over there. But his complexion is fair. He is feeding properly and does not cry or show any symptoms of other problems. Is there something to worry about? Will the hair fall stop? What should we do? We apply coconut oil on his head after his bath daily.
A:The pimple on the head could be a boil which could cause a temporary hair loss around it and hair are likely to come back. If there is hair loss without any skin lesion, then it is alopecia for which you need to see a skin specialist.
