My 5 year old has a bald spot right on his hair line, about a 1 1/2 by 2 in. area. It seemed to have occurred when his mother was cutting his hair short with scissors so i could buzz it short later for the summer time. She cut a little too short in that and some other areas (down to the scalp). The other areas all grew back normally except the one on the back of his head. Could the hair follicles have been damaged enough to where they wont grow back any more or is a waiting game? Its been almost a year now and nothing. Should we try some type of stimulation? Any help would be appreciated.
I find this story difficult to surround. Short haircuts do not cause bald spots. I mean, I’ve never seen balding created from a fully shaved scalp, so the idea that a haircut could cause loss just doesn’t make sense. There might’ve been a scar revealed from previous trauma, which you didn’t see until the hair was cut really short.
This is a situation that requires a one-on-one consultation and after doing that, digging into the history and examining the 5 year old, I might then be able to help.
