My daughter is 2 and has been having hair loss all over her head. It has also been thinning really bad. However, it seems to be growing back. I took her in to get tested and her CRP came back high (3.5) Her CBC was at the high end of normal, but still in the normal range. Her thyroid is normal as well. She really doesn't have any other symptoms that I can tell. Are the hair loss and high CRP related? What does the high CRP mean? What do we do next?
