Dr. Cornelia Franz
Specializes in Pediatrics
Endocrine: She needs to be seen. A thyroid gland not working well can cause that. She may also have a vitamin deficiency. Hair loss sometimes improves with the herb horsetail or a supplement called hair, skin, and nails. She needs to be evaluated though for the best information.
