The: The best thing would be to take him to your pediatrician and see if he has a possible nutritional deficiency or hormonal imbalance. They can perform tests to be sure there is no obvious cause of this, and as that is quite a rare problem in a 3 year old he will need a complete evaluation. ...Read more

Not much you can do: You can except it as part of your uniqueness or dye your hair. The best prediction of how soon your hair will gray, and how much grey hair you will have in at a given age is your parents' hair. Although largely determined by hereditary although environmental factors do contribute to graying hair. Because stress is a proposed contributor, try relaxation techniques and stress reduction. ...Read more

Why do I have gray hair growing only around the moles on my head?

Gray Hair: The graying of the hair is more of a genetic issue and not related to the moles. That is the hair in that region may be predisposed to gray in your case. For most of us the process is more diffuse. The gray hair is not a sign of the mole changing to a skin cancer. ...Read more

I'm only 27 and I just discovered 3 white/grey eyelashes. What could be the cause? And can I prevent getting more? (My vitamin D is 25 ng/mL.)

I'm only 27 and I just discovered 3 white/grey eyelashes. What could be the cause? And can I prevent getting more? (My vitamin D is 25 ng/mL.)

Hair color: Some folks simply grey earlier than others and I know of nothing that can be done about it. Stay neat and clean and treat others the way you would like to be treated. That's much more attractive than eyelashes. A dermatologist may be able to tell you more. ...Read more

Piebaldism: born with a blonde (not white/gray) hair patch in the front of my head. Now lost color to a patch of forehead skin. Can it spread this way?

Piebaldism: born with a blonde (not white/gray) hair patch in the front of my head. Now lost color to a patch of forehead skin. Can it spread this way?

Mutations of either: The KIT gene on Chr. 4q12 or the SNA12 gene on Chr. 8q11, inherited in an Autosomal Dominant fashion, cause Piebaldism. I found 1 case report of ^ing hypopigmented skin patches, thought to be from instability of melanocytes, pigment-producing cells, caused by the specific mutation. Your dermatologist can check for more spots with & without a Woods lamp. See ghr. Nlm. Nih. Gov/condition/piebaldism. ...Read more

Symptoms of black vomit could suggest bleeding in the stomach from a small ulcer, however small things can become big things rapidly and be very dangerous. Don't delay getting an assessment and discuss all medications you may use, even if over the counter. ...Read more
