Post Abscess on scalp healed, now hair loss.

My son had an abscess on the back of his head, he was on antibiotics and the abscess healed but now he has a bald spot where the infection was. Is it likely that the hair will grow back? I am so nervous.

Re: Abscess on scalp healed, now hair loss.

If the follicles haven't been damaged, they will eventually produce a hair. It'll take a few months before you see the results, however. It's good all has healed.

It's all a matter of perspective!
