Few Minutes Of Separation From Parents Causes Girl To Lose Hair BelGravia Centre

A 4 years old girl and her family from the Czech Republic, was holidaying on a beach in Bulgaria when she got separated from her parents. After a few frantic minutes the little girl was found and as her parents hugged her, her hair started falling out in clumps.

Doctors have said that the little girl was so traumatized and extremely stressed of being separated from her family, even only for a few minutes, it caused her to lose all her hair and the doctors diagnosed the little girl with alopecia.

According to the Mayo Clinic, Alopecia is associated with hair loss due to high-stress levels. The body's immune system attacks the hair follicles, which causes the hair to fall out rapidly.

Doctors predict that the little girl only has a small chance of hair regrowth however parents are hopeful that their daugthers hair will regrow soon.
