My 5 year old son have white hair scattered all over his scalp. He got first white strand when he was just 3. He takes proper diet. Doctors say it's hereditary.. but I m worried as its too early premature graying and his peer group may start teasing him.. I don't know how to make my son strong enough to tackle the situations so that he may not affect psychologically...

Thanks Ankur.. Yes one of the doctors prescribed tablets containing calcium pantothenate with altris lotion.. N yes he also did tell that it may or may not reverse the process of premature greying...

You should contact some good trichologist, Some times in children deficiency of certain vitamins or trace elements like calcium pantothenate may lead to grey hair. Not all the times but few times this condition can be reversible

Thanks Swati but I hv spoken to many doctors but they say that it cannot be reversed n I may use some gel in coming years to colour them black.. If u know some good doctor who can actually help me, den please do tell me his details.

Hi Nisha, i think it is better to consult a doctor as he will be able to guide you better in this case.
