I'm going to keep this short. Not sweet unfortunately.
A few weeks ago I went ahead shaved J's head. It was running in the 100s all week and he was sweating and stinky.
He accidentally moved. I zeeked him. That means I clipped too close. So what should happen is that spot is shorter than the rest of the head, and just grows back at a different length.
But it didn't.
Its a bald spot.
Hmm ok. Not stressing.
Today we went to get the boys their back to school hair cuts.
And the girl cutting asked me what happened. I explained. She said that shouldn't leave a bald spot. Just a spot where the hair isn't as long as the rest of the head.
She kept cutting.
And then we saw them.
More bald spots.
Not as large but evident.
Smooth skin. NO hair at all. Not stubby or short just...bald.
I had to fight back the tears. It just didn't make sense.
So I googled. And googled. And left a message for our endo.
The only two causes I have found are alopecia and pituitary (thyroid) issues.
So now I'm on edge.
( I also just noticed he has a small bald spot on his eyebrow!)
And now he's noticing.
