So I am really not sure what to do!
I noticed one morning my 7yr olds head felt like it had been shaved her and her sisters insisted they did not do it she insisted she had no idea how it happened!
Anyone one night I noticed she was scraping the hair between her nails causing it to break but then also pulling strands out!
Been to doctors they referred her to Paediatrics and they have now sent a letter saying they can not help and will get a local clinic to help.
In the space of a week, she has gone from being able to have a bobble to it just been the sides and back because the top is to short!
I feel like I have no idea what to do or help her because in another week time there will be no hair left :( The doctor said don't make her stop in case it is a coping mechanism to feelings instead try distract her but don't directly tell her not to do it as it might make her worse.
The school is concerned and they are telling her to stop when they see her doing it cause it is all day.
