Thanks for your query.
I think your daughters hair fall seems to be Telogen effluvium
The Causes of Telogen Effluvium are
1. After parturition (Child Birth)
2. Post natal (neonatal)
5. Severe or chronic illness
6. Drugs -
7. Nutritional deficiency--Crash Dieting, Starvation, Total energy malnutrition, Protein energy malnutrition
8. Thyroid disease---Hypothyroidism
Telogen effluvium can easily be diagnosed by Pull test-----
Grasping 40 hairs firmly between thumb and forefinger, followed by a slow pull that causes mild discomfort to the patient. A count of greater than 4-6 club hairs is abnormal.
1. Removal of the cause
2. No specific treatment.
I think your daughter will recover very soon.
You may give her Multivitamin Syrup.
