My daughter seems to be losing her hair and has scabs on her scalp.

There are approx. 38 varieties of scalp diseases such as seborrhea and psoriasis that cause the symptoms you describe. I would consult a doctor before seek over the counter help. In the meantime, do not scratch or pick the scabs. In doing so, you may cause more damage/injury.

There are a number of possibilities. She could have lice or a medical condition called alopecia or scabies or a different condition. Whatever the reason, she needs to see adoctor.

It could be a bacterial infection, allergies to the hair shampoo or conditioner or an early symptom of a more serious medical problem. Definitely make an appointment with a doctor.
