Itchy scalp bugs

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy scalp bugs


Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn BUGGED OUT, I BELIEVE YOU! It has been suggested to me by a psychiatrist that I have psychosis because I'm plagued by bugs crawling & biting me but when I brush them away, I don't see anything! I have had this problem off & on for many years! However, after reading your post, I began checking my fingernails & hands when I scratch or brush the bugs away & discovered that there are actually bugs!
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn Yesterday my scalp, back of my neck, and upper torso began to itch furiously! The worst is my scalp though. I definately do not have lice, none of my hygene habits have changed, and I've not eaten anything different than normal. It just feels like bugs are constantly crawling on me. Has anyone else experienced this recently?
749148 tn?1302864559 I have a cold and suddenly feel like there is something crawling on me starting with my scalp. I've checked there is nothing there! Not taking or doing anything different. As some of you will remember I was diagnosed with PPMS in 2008. I don't have "relaspes" things just seem to appear at times. I'm not due to see neuro again until next summer... any suggestions or comments would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn I recently developed small itchy bumps on my scalp and around my one ear. They just started one day last week. I tried a different shampoo for the scalp. No relief. I have not used anything different to bring this on. I have had itchy spots before when I used certain hair products but I have not been using any. It is driving me crazy. I had a little bit of dandruff when this started but that has cleared up. I have had my head checked so many times for lice. Nothing.
Avatar n tn My ears pop every so often and it feels like something popping out of my scalp too. It also feels like bugs are scaling my face.I dont sleep at night it gets worst.I can feel things like bugs braises against my hair in a particular spot and its fallen out very weird to me. Ive been going to the doctors but there not helping and its getting worse. Please help me find a solution.
Avatar m tn Happens on arms, shoulders, backs, necks, legs but not behind knees, in the scalp or groin areas (thank God!). So far we have not been able to see anything. Not a single bug of anykind. Our home is kept very clean. We do feel like they are crawling on us. When this first happened our Dr prescribed a Pemerithin cream for me as I was the first to get a bite (always the case). We washed the sheets, pilowcases, pad and blanket in super hot water with bleach, then again with ammonia.
472570 tn?1274689487 A couple months later I awoke in the middle of the night with a swarm I couldnt see on my scalp and all over. The itch was excrutiating and when I scratched my head they got under my fingernails. My fingers looked like sausages from all the bites and I took a look in the mirror and my eyes and lips were horribly swollen with red splotches on my face. I couldnt see any of these biters, even with that many. The itch lasts several minutes and the swelling was gone by morning when they departed.
Avatar n tn I also have the same mysterious unbearable constant itchy nose, scalp ear problem. It's also right inside nostrils. It consumes me mind, body and soul everyday. When I see family and friends itch in same places I wonder if it's my fault. Is it contagious? Will I or Drs. ever know what this is? It would take a battery of various tests and thousands of dollars I'm afraid. I try all the home remedies too. Some help for a bit (I think) some dont.
1654177 tn?1319842094 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 n tn What to do, if you can stand to be in the shower at a moderate to cool temperature (Too warm and you will irritate your already irritated skin more) and simply massage your scalp (no fingernails). Doing this will help to get the scalp to balance out its own oils, because experts I have seen on TV say this works for all types of hair from dry hair to oily hair. It definitely helps dry hair and dry scalp.
529981 tn?1212853666 There is a sandy-grainy like build up on my scalp This is also accompanied by an itch. 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.
11626839 tn?1420241390 Every morning when I wake up my skin itches from thighs to scalp. As I go through the day a lot of it goes away, but not all.Could someone tell me what this could be?
Avatar f tn I called him after 2 weeks and said that there were no bugs in my place and that I was panicking. I got rid of my sofa and bed and have sent almost everything I own for dry cleaning. I feel sometimes that I am crawling my feet, my hair - my whole body. My doctor checked my hair and said that there was nothing there. It's worse if I'm hot or sweating. Please help me. Don't know what to do next.
Avatar n tn My scalp itches really bad. It literally feels like there are bugs crawling on my head. I have ruled out lice since that what people have asked me. I have used every shampoo you can think of. Now I am using Paul Mitchell Tea Tree shampoos. What can I do to get rid of this itch? Please HELP.
Avatar f tn Hello, These can be due to body lice also. According to CDC(centre of disease control), Intense itching (“pruritus”) and rash caused by an allergic reaction to the louse bites are common symptoms of body lice infestation. Wash the Clothing, bedding, and towels in hot water and dry them in sun after machine drying them. Topical permethrin or Lindane cream may be needed which are available by prescription only.
541234 tn?1266678697 just dx with LOW VIT D taking 50,000 units of this , prior achy bones and muscle pain but now my scalp is making me nutso i'm a beautician but my scalp looks like its BURNED it has dry spots not sure why ? not sure if its an allergy to something but my scalp is itchy burning and scabby and raw have thyroid goitors more problems no answers?
Avatar f tn I had quite the infestation and apparently they were just falling out and ending up on my upper body. The weird thing is, my scalp wasn't really itchy. I just felt a creepy-crawly sensation on my head, ears, eyebrows, lashes, nose, etc. I've found that heat is pretty effective in killing them, even when OTC chemical treatments don't work. I got a lot of relief by washing my hair in HOT water- just be careful not to burn your scalp or face.
Avatar m tn I posted this info before, but it was a reply to someone else's similar post... I am a 23 year old healthy male. I recently had a full physical and the results were that I am in above average health. I have no diseases, do not use drugs, but drink on occasion. Anyways, just started noticing these strange symptoms, within the past few weeks. Nothing "brought it on" so to speak that I can tell of.
Avatar f tn Okay, I dont have a rash or any bites of any kind but I am itchy EVERYWHERE! Its driving me crazy. I seem to scratch without even thinking and then it feels so good (like scratching a mosquito bite) and then I cant stop scratching. Its over my arms, legs, scalp, stomach, not really my privates or face (thank goodness) Its been going on about a week now. Could it be a nervous condition? If Im not (contiously) scratching, its not as bad, but once I start, its really hard to stop.
Avatar f tn I'm losing sleep over this like crazy though because all I can think about are millions of bugs sleeping under me. I need these itchy bites to end asap.... please help- I need all the advice I can get here (my doc already believes i'm a hypochondriac due to the long hard road of discovering I have dermatitis herpetiformis)...
Avatar m tn I have been having a crawly feeling on my scalp like bugs running around (no lice, i got it checked) and the same on my body. No visable marks, rash or anything! Before this started, I had an eye twitch in my left eye. soon as that stopped all this creepy crawlyness started. Can someone please help?
Avatar m tn I have bites on my scalp big ones that are hard limps that hurt and itch all in a group. I can see black bugs come out in the shower some times. When I go to the doctor they see nothing and thing I am crazy. I think this is because I just moved here so no one knows me and no one knows that my hair is not this black or course! He says that it is. He also says that I just have a lumpy scalp. No because I went through chemo and I have a smooth scalp. It is my body so I think I know.
Avatar f tn I have the same thing, and then I connected to the fact that I also have an itchy back and scalp. I noticed my back would itch after eating gluten, I have just now connected it to my legs and scalp. Give it a try!
Avatar n tn Apart from very itchy breasts, I have what looks like teeny bug bits on the lower front and the entire back of my legs, a few on the sides of my thighs, and a little bit on my right elbow. It itches so bad and since I scratched so hard on my legs, it looks horrible now...kind of like brush burn. It is very possible this is completely unrelated to pregnancy and I am just all bitten up or came into contact with some irritant such as a plant.
