It could be that she is catching herself on something in the tank, the filter perhaps? Or an ornament? I am not aware of an illness that causes scales to drop off, is she been bullied by another fish? . If she has not lost more than a few scales it will probably be ok keep doing the water changes and keep an eye on her.

I believe white spot can cause scales to drop off,the white spots appear from under the scale lifting then causing them to drop off in some cases, they should be fine i wouldn't worry too much Smile
