Q.

Grey hair

Hi,
My son is 2 1/2 yrs old. I noticed that he has 1 grey hair. Its more towards the tip of the hair. What would cause this at such an early age. Should I take him to the doc?

Paediatrician

I don't think that you need to be concerned about 1 grey hair. This may occur in some families. If he develops an area of grey hair then he will need to be chcked by a paediatrician.
