In brief: Nice question
Rhett's syndrome is a pervasive developmental disorder peculiar to girls.
Odd & purposeless hand motions such as excessive rubbing can lead to focal areas of hair loss. Trichtillomania (neurotic pulling out hair) requires purposeful fine motor coordinated action to pull hair. So rubbing is the way a rett child would lose hair patches.
