Common Questions and Answers about Dry skin scalp


Avatar f tn I'm 13 1/2 weeks and my skin and scalp has gotten dry. I added coconut oil to my lotion but it wears off like my body is drinking the lotion. I'm itchy and uncomfortable. I've tried about 4 different shampoos and conditioners and they make my scalp dry and itchy.

Avatar f tn Is this something to do with a dry scalp that could be flaking onto my forehead and eyebrows?
Avatar f tn I have extremely dry scalp all over that flakes and itches so bad. I've tried Head 'n' Shoulders, Selsen Blue, Green Tea Tree Oil...everything...when I initially wash my hair it works. But by that evening or the next morning it's back. When I try to use conditioners to help, my hair gets so oily I can't stand it. I don't blow dry my hair anymore because it makes it worse faster. I'm just at a loss of what to else to do to make it go away!!
Avatar f tn When I was in 4th grade I started noticing dandruff in my bangs. I could see the dry skin there and growing up it was only in my bangs but over the years I noticed it going more over the top of my scalp. Sometimes it'd be worse and my hair would itch bad and I'd have dandruff and I thought it was maybe just in winter when it's more dry but about 2years ago when I was living in MS on the gulf (not dry area at all) it was horrible (winter and summer)!
Avatar f tn s rosemary mint and it totally changed my hair and scalp. No more flakes or itchy scalp for this lady (; the scalp benefits has even helped people with psoriasis. I went and bought the big bottles with the pumps but if you're unsure you can try a smaller bottle for a lesser price. They're pretty close to all natural and extremely good smelling, I definitely recommend it! I can't not wash my hair or I break out and get extremely oily.
Avatar n tn Some sort of vitamin deficiency? The rest of my skin (other than face and scalp) is pretty dry, too. I have had my thyroid checked, but never had vitamin levels checked. Any advice? I am so tired of being embarassed.
Avatar n tn I moved from a very humid climate to a dry, colder climate/higher altitude this winter. Since moving here, we both have developed rashes throughout our body. Dry skin, kind of scaly but not quite, just noticible, red patches some no bigger than a dime some larger. They itch too. I have to assume that this is due to the climate change, but wonder what would be good treatment. I have tried a combination of a good moisturizer mixed with hydrocortisone cream with no luck.
Avatar f tn He could be allergic to gluten which is in almost everything but that allergy seems to cause dry skin and scalp mostly....
771702 tn?1235157810 My GP thought it might be basal cell carcinoma. The rest of my scalp is comprised of dry, flaky skin that can be scraped off with my finger nails. I also have dry patches one each temple but no sores anywhere else on my body.

Avatar n tn I am a licensed cosmetologist and let me tell you; dandruff is caused by a FUNGUS. Dry skin & dandruff are two completely unrelated hair diseases. I have experienced exactly what you are going through right now and you must treat it as dry skin not dandruff. Selsun blue won't do you any good because it contains a medication used for treating the dandruff fungus. Head and shoulders may help because it is targeted for dry, itchy scalp.
Avatar m tn I also have a dry-skin problem on my face and my doctor gave me Ketoconazole cream which helped, but the same cream does not remedy my scalp problems. Even with lotion on the dry spots in my scalp they still appear. Any help?
Avatar n tn That's totally normal. My baby is 3 months and still has that on her scalp. Don't put any creams on it.
681148 tn?1437661591 I have very dry skin and scalp too. I have to carry a chapstick and hand lotion with me wherever I go and use it on a frequent basis, otherwise I have the same happen.
Avatar f tn I have itchy dry red bumps on my skin. The dry ones are like the scab healing. The other red ones are new. They are mostly on my stomach and back and get worse during my menstrual cycle. I started taking a probiotic for other reasons and it cleared up my skin. Soon as I don't take them my skin flares up again.
Avatar n tn I have been off the drug for 2 years and made skin has cleared up great. But now my skin is very dry and including a very dry scalp. My hair was very oily and thick before i sued accutane and now it feels very dry and thin. I've heard that my sebacuous glands will come back to there pre-accutane levels, is this true? I really hope so b/c i want my oily hair back.
1654177 tn?1319838494 I recently used some hair dye and my scalp had a bad reaction to it. I had a little dry scalp previously but nothing crazy. After my scalp was so dry and itching all the time and scabbing. I tried the Shielo Hydrate Shampoo and it was INSTANT relief. I also feel like it took it away, my scalp does itch anymore.
Avatar f tn Ringworm is a fungal skin infection that occurs on the face, body or scalp. The symptoms of Ringworm or Tinea Capitis include a dry itchy scalp, scaling, crusting, inflamed nodules, hair loss and tender enlarged lymph nodes on the neck. Because of the scratching that is involved with the condition it can become secondarily infected with a bacterial infection which can cause a swollen lymph node also. I think in your case it could be fungal scalp infection and secondary bacterial infection.
5255779 tn?1414034937 Does anyone else have a really dry scalp where it looks like big flakes of skin?!?!
Avatar f tn I have the same issue! I'm 33 weeks with a boy too. My first baby. And not only do I have itchy scalp but super dry and flakey skin as well as acne worse than I've ever had in my entire life! For my scalp I use is a tree tea oil shampoo. It tingles a bit on your scalp when u wash but it relieves dry scalp which causes the itch. I hope this helps and good luck with your little guy!
Avatar m tn Hello, You should not use any topical treatment that has expired in January 2010. Regarding the dry skin and scalp, atopic dermatitis and seborrheic dermatitis causing dry and flaky scalp should be ruled out. The mainstay of management is liberal use of moisturizers after washing with luke warm water. Soap should be used minimally. Moisturizers should be reapplied liberally during the day. You can also use a topical cortisone (steroid) cream or ointment like dermacort(hydrocortisone).
