Has anyone else heard of...(OT)
aplasia cutis congenita? Ozzie has weird bald spot withe no hair follicles and we had to go to the dermatologist for it. They told me it was this ( I thought they scratched him up with contraction monitor) and that he should probably have MRI to rule out that it might go deeper than the surface of the scalp. We are not sure we will do MRI since they told us it was a really slim chance, and his development is normal (even above normal). Read up on ACC online, but was wondering if anyone else has heard of it, or has a dx of it in their LO. I am not around much, but I posted way back when Ozzie was little, and we thought reflux...then we didn' I do, but no one else does. He is not medicated, I just regulate his diet, and he does that lovely swallowing-throw-up thing...**sigh**...I read about the sweet babies here and wonder how you all do it!! TFR!!

Jessica, Mommy to Jedd, severe reflux, severe food and oral aversions, Finally G tube free!!! VSD repair 4-24-07 (open heart surgery), hypospadias, repaired 3 times and Ear tubes Visit Jedd at his CB site:
I taught a student who suffered from this. thye used a oil/cream by RX on it and his hair did grown back. that is NOT always the case, it can be a permant thing the hair lose that is.

His started out with a small spot. It got larger and I mentioned it to his mother. She brought him to the pedi. and she refered them to a dermatologist.

From there he got the DX of Alapachia. He never had any extensive testing on his issue.

I hope you can get some help from a good dermatologist.

Tracey, mom to Katie diagnosed with GERD at 3 week.
I had a student who had it too but don't know if he used cream or not. It just looked like he had a circle of hair missing.
Check with your
doctor first!
