Q: Can I use adult hair loss treatments on my child?
A: First, ask a doctor! Second, it depends on the product. Some of the shampoos are the same formulas that adults use and some of the anti-fungal creams might be prescribed (or used if over the counter) in a less-concentrated form. If you’re going to buy the treatments online, be sure you’re getting the right strength!
Q: What kind of doctor deals with kids who are losing their hair?
