Shocked Girl has eaten all her hair.....

Primary-school girl eats own hair
By Jessie Tao (chinadaily.com.cn)
Updated: 2006-06-13 17:33
Xiao Ping, an eight-year-old girl in Chongqing Municipality, has eaten up all her hair in the past two years, her mother told the Chongqing Evening News on Monday.
Now Xiao Ping is bald, and Mrs. Li is going public, hoping that some one can help her rid her daughter of her strange habit.






The rest is here: http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2...ent_616021.htm



What a strange habit!






If it's in the wrong place feel free to move it mods

Wow! Poor child! Like the article suggested- she should be taken to a doctor or hospital so they can determine why she does this. Perhaps she's lacking something in her diet? Or stress related?

I hope they *do* take her for tests. Soon.

This behavior is a version of Trichotillomania. She needs help not shame to make her stop.

Sounds to me like this little girl may have pica
Hopefully the doctors will be able to help her and her family out.

I don't think I have ever read about pica. I wonder if that will end up being in any of my psych. books. *off to do research*

That is what I was thinking. The poor little sweetie. I hope that she gets the help she needs.

That's what I thought as well. But for some reason- I had it stuck in my pea-brain that pica affects pregnant women only.
