My 6 year old daughter has been experiencing diffuse hair loss from the past few weeks. The hair loss is at least double than normal, in the 200 range, and it falls extremely easy from her head. It is not patchy and I can find no bald spots, her scalp looks healthy. So far, the loss is not noticeable. Her iron, thyroid, and blood count, are normal. The week before this started we were on vacation. She spent the week in the sun and pool. Her scalp did receive a minor burn that peeled, but it healed quickly. Three months ago, she used a lice shampoo. Nothing else in her history explains this. She does have minor eczema and seasonal allergies. Any idea what is going on and when it will stop?

Thank you doctor,
Could it be from any of the triggers I noted? There is nothing else in her history that explains this.
