  1. Last night I started falling asleep and it came to me.....

    Scorchers hair loss started July/August and we changed her food last year and it stopped.....then it started up again this month I mean LOADS of hair coming out. I have been trying to work it out....and now I have.

    Food allergy.

    I am currently checking through the food she has been on before her first hair loss and since then to see what ingredient it could be but its looking likely wheat is the cause.

    The reason I think that is because we changed her on the JW last week because she was not eating her food and her hair loss was to much. Then her hairs not falling out as much (as much because there are still patches of hair that are lose and need brushing out).

    Have to give her a try on wheat free foods and see how she goes.

    Isn't it amazing how things come to you at night, when the computer's off and everyone's in bed. When that happens to me I have to put it in a text on my phone and save it - i've always forgotten by the morning only to remember again the following night! :eek:

    Hope you've found the problem - good bit of detective work if you have. ;)
