Common Questions and Answers about Sensitive scalp sore to touch

sore

I was told that since my hair is thick and heavy, it could make my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span> sore. But really, sometimes it hurt too much <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> even touch, let alone comb my hair. Imagine my depression when I realized that my scalp was still sore after I allowed my beautician to "scalp" me! It NEVER occurred to me that it could be a result of the MS, but that makes sense, now. On a more positive note, since I have alot of pain in my arms, short hair is much easier for me to manage.
It started with a bad itching rash on my back that will not go away and cold or sinus like symptoms Yesterday I woke up with my left upper arm hurting with no redness but today when I showered I saw a baseball size red spot that is very sensitive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch It feels strange <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> move my arm like it swollen Feel unusually tired and sleepy I don't have Insurance so cannot go to Doctor would really love to know what is happening.
Basically, for about 24 - 48 hours, an area of skin (generally from the size of a softball <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> basketball) will become extremely tender and sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch ... almost as if it were bruised significantly. It is so tender that clothes brushing against it is painful. The problem is, there is no visual evidence of it. I went to the doctor and felt as though he was insinuating that I was making up the symptoms because he could not see anything. Very, very frustrating.
I have some pain on the crown of my head, it gets bad at times and it is sensitive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch even when I lie down or anything touches it. I also have pain in the ear on the right side, it also affects my eyes, pressure behind them.

I am a busy college student, who unfortunately does not have the time and money to deal with this.
Lately, I have become very sensitive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> A/C. When the cold air blows down my neck and back I begin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get a cold and tingly sensation down by back. It lasts for hours. I have tried Aleve, Advil and Tylenol to no avail. If I get a good nights sleep, I wake up feeling OK. But, if I come in contact with cold air it starts all over again. I too am desperate.
It is subtle so the doctors don't seem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> care about it. I do though! Sometimes my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span> also feels sore in spots and sometimes puffy. Sometimes it tingles like crazy. It feels like little critters but there is nothing there. I was dxd w/lyme in 2005 and much better now but still residual issues.
I noticed my ear started hurting yesterday afternoon. today, I noticed my throat hurt and my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span> has become increasingly sensitive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch. Did you see a doctor? Did you take anything or do anything to relieve your symptoms? Thanks!
Accompanying this symptom, was a localized area on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span>, that was sensitive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch. Located on the top right side of my head, the area was about three inches in diameter. No pain, just sensitive when touched. Additionally, there was occasional tenderness felt from the inner ear area of my right ear. Again, mild and infrequent. Symptoms occurred on day one, but day two were hardly noticable. Reappeared on day three, four and five. No other cold or flu like symptoms to speak of.
I wish I could be really clinical about explaining it but basically Prilosec blocks the body's absorption of folic acid. I have had a sensitive/sore/burning tongue for months and finally went <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the doc after trying to treat it myself with dry mouth washes, etc. She ordered a blood test which showed that I had a folic acid deficiency. It is because of the Prilosec. So, I've started taking folic acid pills every morning (cheap at the drug store and 100% folic acid) and it has helped.
However, since about the age of 13 I have been experiencing outrageous headaches, which I believe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> have been migraines. I feel nauseous and am sensitive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> light and sound. I experienced them at least once a month and they have always been centered around my left eyeball (the bump is located on the left side of my scalp about an inch and a half behind my hairline, directly in line with my left eyeball).
I would suggest you <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> see a good dermatologist. Dermatitis can also cause sore areas on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span>. Do keep us posted!
I have been having some scalp pain on the right side of my head above my ear and down the back of my head.

There is also a burning feeling at times. At times it is even uncomfortable to blow on my skin. I also have sharp pains in my bones and tendons often at the same time.

Excessively sensitive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span> could be due <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span> inflammation caused due <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> diet, stress, internal hormonal imbalances or a bacterial/ fungal infection. The symptoms could be severe itching,redness,pimples, oily scalp, flaking, crusting causing bleeding. It could be something more serious like temporal arteritis. This is the inflammation and damage to the large blood vessels that supply the head, usually branching in the neck from carotid artery, usually the temporal artery.
It has gotten bigger over the years and is starting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> bother me. It gets very sore and itchy. I hit it with the comb or brush every time I do my hair. Even my hair dresser has noticed that it has gotten bigger.I am having it removed tomorrow morning.

I have a feeling it's an anxiety thing for me, I am outrageously shy, and I think that could add to my anxiety. When I <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span>, it really hurts, but I always go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> pick it! If I have picked away all the scabs, I have this almost sticky liquid like substance that comes out of the scab, and then it starts to bleed.
Has anyone experienced this problem before, and if so, do you know of anything that will get my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span> back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> normal. PS - it has nothing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> do with my diet, because i eat extremely healthy and always have.
For about 2 weeks now when I wake up in the mornings my nose on the right side is stopped up. My ear hurts sometimes but not bad just when I blow my nose it hurts. I am not dizzy but I feel like I am off balance sometimes. It hurts to breath cold air too. I am highly allergic to perfumes and other strong smells. but this tenderness in my head is bothering me.

Yesterday I woke up with my bottom right wisdom tooth sore and the tissue around it swollen. My right ear and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span> are also very sensitive to the touch. If either are touched or move, they hurt a lot. I also get what feels like ear ache pain on the right side whenever I swallow. Is a nerve being compressed or does this sound like an infection?
But my clitorus does feel very hard underneath the hood like you mentioned. As if it was eroused and stayed that way. My doesn't feel sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch but it doesn't feel normal either. Questions: do you have the smemga (white stuff) built up underneath your clitoral hood? Also, do you get little white spots under the hood? I thought it was apart of my clitoris but found out I can remove them, it's like a build up of some sort?
In the beginning, they were just itchy even if I pick at them. Now they're itchy, but very sensitive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> touch and sore. I've seen stories online about people taking fish oil pills which helped clear their skin, along with Vitamin A supplement. Any truth to this?
They get quite painful to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch and have recently begun <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> accompany a burning feeling. When I look at my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span> it looks slightly red, but not terribly. The burning sensation also sweeps across the upper part of my forehead and hairline, but no reddness or bumps are present. Have you ever heard of these sensations before and is it possible that it is caused from a chemical allergy? If not what might it be related to? Thank you for your time.
First, if I feel some crawling on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>scalp</span> and hit the spot (as like trying <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> splat the bug) it will start <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> crawl the other direction. I also get the same thing if I apply tea tree oil or epsom salt to the area where they are crawling, the run and move to another location. Second, now that I feel them under my skin it really hurts when they move, I feel pain in my kneed, back, and other places.

They're extremely painful and sore and hot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch when they're inflamed. I've asked doctors about them and they say it's nothing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> worry about. I've noticed if I put antibiotic ointment on them they generally go away pretty quickly. If you touch one, be sure to wash your hands with soap and warm water before touching anything else. If you shave, it's very common to get ingrown hairs.. and that's what forms boils.
The smear test came back normal. The Doc gave me some Anusol which didn't seem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be working.. AT ALL Thursday I went <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> Back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the Doctors because my husband found a spot like raised area on the perineum and when he dabbed it with a tissue, blood and a little yellowy green (Sorry Yuck) came out of it. (It really is a tiny little hole with two like paper cuts by the side of it.. So of we both my husband and I trundled back to the doctor and had him take another look.
This time it happened much quicker, starting on the right lower eye, then moved to the left. The right under eye is very red, sore and dry. It feels so rough <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>uch. I have not worn make up today and have only applied vaseline and aqeous cream. I haven't changed any toileteries or make up in the last 2 months. I am not sure what it could be? I don't think it is eczema, but believe it could be an allergic reaction to something. I can't seem to work out what it could be?
