Avatar f tn The problem now is where the bumps are her hair is falling out. Bald spots and each time I wash her hair I am getting more and more hair in my hands. We are african american and she has no chemicals in her hair. IS there anyone that can help. I am desperate and concerned that it's something more serious but I don't know where to take her.
Avatar f tn What causes a red, itchy pimple-like rash on scalp with subsequent hair loss? I have been treated with Ketokonazole shampoo, steroid liquid applied to scalp, chemical- and fragrance-free shampoo and conditioner (Free & Clear), stopped coloring my hair, etc. and so far nothing has taken this away. I am now losing my hair! Can anyone help me?
Avatar m tn Dear, I have had scalp problems for a couple of years now which in my opinion caused hair loss. I have acne & bumps all over my scalp with different sizes, they dissappear and appear again. My family members tells me that my scalp somehow looks red. I have difficulties to exercise because when I sweat my head itches a lot. I have been to several dermatologists who prescribed roacutane of 10mg which I took for one year, but didn't really help instead I got some liver problems.
Avatar f tn I have medium size bumps that have formed on my head.
Avatar n tn Hi Hair loss may be due to underlying scalp conditions. The most common scalp conditions that may be causing this are tinea capitis which is a fungal infection, seborrheic dermatitis and discoid lupus. In your case, oral medications such as griseofulvin or terbinafine may be able to help. Was a test done to ascertain that this is indeed a fungal infection?
Avatar m tn thinning of the hair on my scalp – especially when applying wax and showering, a lot will come out in my hands, also I will get 10+ strands if I run my hands through my hair a few times, I just notice hairs that have fallen quite a lot of the time – my hair is noticeably different to style & thinner.
Avatar f tn For the time being, try to pay attention to when you are doing the scratching and picking and stop yourself. If you are at home, try wearing socks on your hands or a hat on your head because it is hard to scratch or pick at something that you can't get to. Sit on your hands if you have to. In the end though, I think you have issues that need to be talked out with some sort of counselor. Take care.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn i have then gone to the institute of tricologist in London where the consultant has said that its not male pattern baldness as the hair loss is thinning and being post on the top sides' and back of my scalp and said that it may be telegon effluviam and folliculitus which he gave me an iodine based shampoo to relieve the itch and pain.
Avatar f tn 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!
Avatar n tn Hello, Many people do not develop symptoms after they first get infected with HIV. Others have a flu-like illness within several days to weeks after exposure to the virus. Since you are not having any symptoms(other than the penile bumps which can be due to contact dermatitis or friction rub also), so chances of HIV are less likely. Confirmation is only done by specific tests for HIV like western blot,PCR and ELISA.
Avatar f tn I was have a lot of hair fall, the stylist was commenting on it always(every 4 weeks I was there for two more years). My hair hurt to move it, then itching an lymph notes started swelling and bumps on my head(and the lymph notes on top of my head). Last year I thought it might be the hair color. The dermatologist did not think so, suggested stop using so many hair products. Did not color for several months, lots of gray hair starting to come back in...even little short ones...

Its burns like fire and itching makes me mad. dont have lice or dandruff on scalp. I do have a hot tub I have been in a few times this year. I keep it very clean and put new water in every 4 weeks.
Avatar n tn I just got told by my hair dresser that I have patches of hair loss. I have 4 in all. My scalp is itchy and I noticed lately I am tired more than normal. I also noticed my jewelry is turning on my fingers....What is happing to my body? I am 43 and in extremely great shape...so I thought....any thoughts on HPV causing all this?
73878 tn?1214056807 Not on treatment but would like to know if my hair loss and on going uniary trac infections are side affects of the Hep C. Any info would be helpful........
Avatar n tn You might want to try a Hair, Skin and Nail, vitamin combo. I purchase mine at wal-mart and it stopped my hair loss. Mine was not from synthroid, though. It was from another medicine. But its worth a try.
Avatar m tn There seems to be a lot of things this could be, except that I don't have some key symptoms - big red rash, bumps/lesions, flaking, scaling, and NO HAIR LOSS. Everything I find has this as a symptom and I don't -yet, knock on wood. The itching is driving me CrAzY! I haven't changed any soaps, shampoos, cleaners... I haven't starting or stopped doing anything new. I have not had a recent haircut or hair treatment that might be causing an allergic reaction.
Avatar n tn rarely do i get bumps on the head but now i see little red spots and my hair falling rapidly. my family (grand parents) have no history of hair loss. i do have dry skin all over - knuckles, face etc. the dermatologist did not do any skin tests - just a look and tell. should i talk to some other doc? what could be causing all the hair loss. since i was 17, my hair has been thinning but now its been falling a lot faster. when i see a differnt doc, should i ask him todo any tests?
Avatar f tn I also noticed along with the hair loss, that my hair is extremely dry and brittle and breaks easily. Recently they have become very bothersome. Could you please tell me what could this be, and what can I do for it? Is it possible that it could be folliculitis, or scalp dermatitis?
Avatar m tn I am DESPERATE and experiencing SEVERE HAIR LOSS. It began almost 4 yrs ago and I am 42 years old. It has been VERY COSTLY to say the least in getting diagnosed so that I am able to begin my journey to recovery. I AM AT MY WITS END and the emotional toll this takes on a person is even worse than the torturous pain itself. I've had countless blood tests, no less than 6 cultures for Staph & Fungal infections, 3 scalp biopsy's and 3 strand tests.
