Hi I suffer from randomly getting an itchy face or scalp. It usually happens after I get out of the shower, but can be random and happen in the middle of the day without me touching any fragrances or anything like that. It looks like little bites almost, I usually get them on my forehead or just on or underneath my jaw, also on my eyebrows and only recently I have had an itchy scalp.
If you are having a horribly itchy scalp, itchy forehead, red bumps on scalp or face, dry skin, itchyface, "eczema" pimples on the scalp or most terribly the itchy scalp that will not go away that leads to hair loss; you have probably come in contact with a person who has one of these symptoms in their mouth or have touched an object after they have had their hands in or around their mouth. You may even be the carrier.
Hi, This could be seborrhoeic dermatitis. It is a skin disorder affecting the scalp, face, and trunk causing scaly, flaky, itchy, red skin. It particularly affects the sebum-gland rich areas of skin. Side effects to inflammation may include temporary hair loss. If severe outbreaks are untreated for extended intervals, permanent hair loss may result, because of damage to hair follicles. http://en.wikipedia.

Hi,, The reason for your itchy face could be an allergy or just dry sin. You could take OYC anti-histamines for it and initially apply calamine lotion.After the itch settles down you could regularly use a moisturizer with sun-screen and keep your face hydrated. Also drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day helps in keeping facial skin healthy.
Hi all: This Friday will be my 5th week on meds. I just developed dry, itchy skin on face around mouth, under nose and chin. Has anyone else developed this. Is this part of the sx or am I developing an allergy? It is so irritating. I bought benadryl gel and put it on on the way home from work. It relieved it after a few minutes. I just washed my face and put on some more before bed. It burns a little when I put it on. I'm going to take a capful of liquid benadryl now and see if it goes away.

There is inflammation and damage to the blood vessels that supply the head area, especially the head area, the large or medium arteries that branch from the neck. The cause is usually a faulty immune response. Consult your neurologist immediately who would examine you in detail.

I recently started getting acne on my face, back of neck, and shoulders. My scalp also itches sometimes? And when I touch the area that itched I feel a small bump... what could this be?? Is it associated with the HPV or could it possibly be HIV?? I don't feel bad just have increased acne and an itchy scalp? I know that HIV can be asymptomatic for a long time and before I got the genital warts I did have a flu-like symptom and even a canker sore.

The second worked, she has been feeling fine since other than her non stop itching. She itches on the face, scalp, neck, legs, and arms. She has tried benadryls, calming lotions, and herbal suppliments. Nothing has helped. Tonight i found about 5 unexplained cuts all over her scalp. Im not sure if she should be checked out or if i am over reacting. She is currently taking baclofen and diazopine. Please help me out. She would really appreciate it!

My husband has large itchy, flaky skin on his scalp and in his beard and mustache. It flakes in large yellow chunks that tend to be quite thick and if scratched off will often bleed. It is embarassing as he has large yucky flakes falling out all the time. He has tried prescription shampoos which worked for a couple months only. Now he uses a different kind of shampoo and conditioner every time he washes his hair which helps a bit but not much. Also have used different oils, etc.
my 7yro daughter started having an itchy scalp w/ a rash behind her ears & on the back of her neck. This has been going on for 3 days; we recently changed shampoos and we believe that this may be the problem. I have been bathing her in baking soda baths & baby shampoo w/ multiple rinsing, 12.5mg of Benadryl PRN and Hydrocortizone Creme @ hs & in the a.m. The rash has lessened, but, still itching & the rash is milder, but, still there.
Itchy scratchy scalp has been one of my major sx and the only way I found around it is to use a shampoo and conditioner that contains NO Sodium Laurel Sulphates (SLS) at all. If I do, my head itches and burns and I find that it spreads all over my body. Which would make sense as when I wash my hair in the shower the residue runs over my body. I am using only natural products on my skin and scalp now. You can get organic ranges that have no SLS in them.
