I also have had the problem with an itchy scalp that feels like it is burning. I have to use shampoo/conditioner that does not contain soy protein or any type of soy. I hope you get some relief.....
Hello, One of the possibilities for your symptoms is telogen effluvium. Under normal circumstances hair growth in each hair follicle occurs in a cycle. There are three main phases of the hair growth cycle; anagen, catagen and telogen. Anagen is the active growth phase when hair fibre is produced, catagen is a period of controlled regression of the hair follicle and telogen is the resting phase. It is nonscarring alopecia characterized by diffuse hair shedding, often with an acute onset.
I've noticed that my scalp has been rather itchy lately, and also that my hair seems to be thinning a bit (23 Male). I'm not sure if the hair loss has been gradual, but I haven't really noticed it up until now and it's mainly in the front of my scalp (though not affecting my widow's peak, that I can tell). The hairline isn't receding, to clarify, only my hair looks less dense on the both sides of the front of my scalp.
My dermatologist prescribed steroids and the rash went down, but the itchy scalp and flaking and hair loss are still going on - three weeks later. I want to know if this is hormonal and stress-related (my job is requiring me to work 12-hour days and is a stressful PR position AND I work a job on the weekends because my PR job doesnt pay what I owe in student loans) - this on top of having to deal with becoming pregnant (unplanned) and then losing that pregnancy.
If so, that could be the cause of your itchy scalp. Do you have an sores, dandruff, scaly patches or lesions on your scalp? Hair loss can be a symptom of lupus and in my experience, it tends to fall out in patches. It is definitely something you should mention to your doctor!
Hi Barb, I'm so sorry you have had limited hair regrowth following chemo--but very happy to hear that you are 6 years out from your course of chemo!! As you probably realize from the old thread referenced at the bottom of your post, hair after chemo may be thinner, a different color or texture, may be changed from curly to straight or from straight to curly, or, unfortunately, in some cases, may not grow back at all.
Recently I have been experiencing a burning and faint itching sensation on my scalp line. I have lost some hair and new hair growth comes in with a crinkly dry texture. My scalp looks healthy and I wash and condition my hair daily. Any ideas.
Even after I wash my hair, the grainy like build up is still there. It is NOT flaky what so ever. My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations. Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help.
I'm an african american with short, dry, hair with dry flaky scalp. My scalp is flaky on the left side and front hair line above my forehead. when the scalp is scratched with a comb, it appears the flakes are actually scabs. If scratched too hard the area bleeds. In the past, I had used head and shoulders but it worked temporarily. I have used moisturizers marketed as moisurizers for african american males and have had some success when I use it and wrap my head.
I also have a regularly itchy and dry scalp with white or yellow flakes everywhere. I lose a lot of hair during combing and when washing it so have reduced to washing my hair only a couple of times a week or at the most 3 times. Also I often find 'scabs' on my scalp which itch like crazy till I pick them off (gross, I know!) and there are even some small 'bloody' bits in places. My hair strands always have something whitish-clear stuck to them like glue (oil?).
It is strongly recommended to visit your doctor for proper evaluation of the lesion and management. For the infection to be completely cured, the hair needs to grow out. With average hair growth, this process could take weeks to months. Therefore, continuing to take all the medications prescribed by your doctor for the entire course of treatment is important. I hope this helps.
I tried anti dandruff shampoo it helps a little but everytime I washed my hair next thing I know my scalp itch again. I tried different shampoo before this anti dandruff shampoo. The skin doctor prescripted a medicated shampoo but I still itch. I think the medicated shampoo is strong too. So now I scatch my face and my scalp. It is very annoying and it is not people friendly. Who wants to look at me scatching. I dont know why this is happening to me. I definetly have red and rash on my face.
for the past few years I've been noticing that I have thinner hair on the right side of my scalp. When I run my hand gently through my hair I notice that hair falls out WAY easier than the left side of my head. I'm not shedding clumps of hair, it's just my right side of the scalp sheds more in comparison to the left. Is this something normal? I've been stressing about this a lot!
I am 25 years old, im facing hair loss problem around 2 years ago. I tried a lot of method to recover my hair growth but it just doesn't work.

Is there anyway to grow my hair back? 2. What should I do about the acne on my scalp? I don't have dandruff but my scalp is itchy and greasy after a day of being out.
When the hormones return to pre-pregnancy levels, that hair falls out and the normal cycle of growth and loss starts again. Some medicines can cause hair loss. This type of hair loss improves when you stop taking the medicine. Medicines that can cause hair loss include blood thinners (also called anticoagulants), medicines used for gout, medicines used in chemotherapy to treat cancer, vitamin A (if too much is taken), birth control pills and antidepressants.
I have also loosed a lot of hair lately. My scalp is so itchy sometimes it drives me completely crazy. I cannot wear dark shirts because people can see the flakes on my shirt. I have a history of Psoriasis and I am using medicated shampoo but it has not helped me so far. Please help me dr. Rockoff with this little annoying problem. Thanks Aline McCarthy ***@**** PS: How can I pick up your answer?
Hi everyone! I have had a small growth on my scalp for years, it never bothered me too much but I always wondered what caused it. It's not noticeable because my hair covers it, it's never itched and I can brush over it. I do have to be careful where I part my hair though and I'm sure it's getting bigger. I asked my GP about it and he said it is a wart, and I could get it taken off easily but it would leave a small bald patch so I may be better off to leave it alone.
Your hair needs vitamins and minerals to grow that it can only get from the bloodstream. So if you want to speed up your hair growth and thickness you should limit the intake of fat and salts. Selenium, zinc and magnesium are some of the minerals that your hair needs and also amino acids and vitamin E will help in growing hairs. You can eat foods rich in these. Hope that this information helps and hope that you will get better soon. Wishing you good health.
Alopecia areata is a genetic condition which causes sudden round bald patches on the scalp/ beard along with inflammation of the roots of the hair follicles. However, the hair follicles are not destroyed and hair growth continues after inflammation subsides. The commonest site for alopecia areata is the scalp, but frequently the beard area in men is affected. It can affect a single area or multiple areas.
I have had the same hair loss with extremely tender, burning and itchy scalp for many years and lost a considerable amount of hair in the process. In the same period of time I've also had menstrual migraines. I have been seeing an endocrinologist and a dermatologist to try and work things out. The endocrinologist has me on Spiro and Lo Loestrin to even out my hormones and the dermatologist has me on dermasmoothe and nizoral to stop the burning, itching and tenderness.

My head itches and has kind of a tingly feeling like I can feel each hair follicle falling out. My hair is very thin and wispy. A women at my job asked me why my hair was standing straigth up. You know I hadn't even noticed it. I guess I have new growth or broken off hair that is only an inch or two long and it wants to stand up. I went into the bathroom put water on it to lay it down (mistake) LOL. Basically, my feelings were hurt and I was very sad for awhile but got over it.
The only thing now is that from washing my hair so much my scalp is a bit itchy, but whatever I'd rather have that then sticky hair. I'm going to start using Nizoral shampoo to take the itchiness away plus it is supposed to take the sticky/wax away the pharmacist said to use it 3 times a week and hopefully it will bring my hair back to normal. Do not bother changing shampoos or going out and trying out different products just use the dish wash it will work. Hope this helps!
If severe outbreaks go untreated for long periods of time, permanent hair loss may result due to damaged hair follicles. Expect two to six months before hair growth may resume. Topical terbinafine solution (1%) has also been shown to be effective in the treatment of scalp seborrhoea.Among dermatologist recommended treatments are shampoos containing coal tar, ciclopiroxolamine ketoconazole, selenium sulfide, or zinc pyrithione. ref:http://en.wikipedia.
solution for my friend of age 19, having problem of itchy scalp with white substance on scalp and ear pinna. some whitish patch are also seen on elbows. her hair were growing beautifully before but now she has no growth of hair in length.
I didn't start getting hair loss, until my 20 th week, although my rash went all the way up to my head, and gave me an itchy scalp. But at 4 weeks Post treatment, yes, my hair is also falling out, about 10 strands come out, if I run my hand thru it. If my husband catches me doing this on his bed, he sends me out, like a shedding pet!
It does not cause any discomfort or pain. But I have several other problems which include itchy skin, fatigue, and scalp sores. I was diagnosed with a staph infection and yeast infection and treated for that, but the problems didn't seem to go away. Before all of these problems happened I started taking this natural dietary supplement called zenmed internal cleansing supplements.
