Itchy scalp means hair is growing

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy scalp means hair is growing


Avatar m tn forehead is becoming horrible. Scalp very itchy, dandruff, lots of hair coming out. Can this be Demodex? If so – how long does it take for it to get out of control and can all my symptoms be reversed if treated? Could the fact that I just started taking lymecycline have had any effect on these things becoming infested?
529981 tn?1212853666 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.
137539 tn?1344383528 My hair is shredding, really dry now and I don't have much hair loss, but is coming out a bit. My hair is thick and long. It seems to break off in little pieces and come out in long clumps. I hope I don't lose too much, and it doesn't seem to be much of a problem now. I am on 21/48 now. The conditioning idea is a good one. I need to go have my cut quite a bit as it is really getting straight and stringy, opposed to curly. In the whole scheme of things, this doesn't bother me too much.
Avatar n tn 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. My upper back also itch but I thought it was heat rash but still itch even after I went to a skin doctor. It is very unbearable.
Avatar n tn i have had a itchy scalp for 2 months and now i have a rash on back of neck and is itchy.i just went to my doctor today and she said i had head lice WRONG!!! if i had head lice i would be infested with them and so wouldn't my family.i have tried t-gel,head and shoulders,scalpacin and taking benadryl.i do have a little bit of dandruff and the tops of my ears itch.
Avatar f tn 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!
Avatar f tn The scalp pain is very bothersome and I have had some hair loss, but it grows back. I was told and have read the scalp pain and hair loss is part of the fibromyalgia, is this true?
Avatar n tn I pick so much that when it is time to wash my hair, it burns. But I love picking my scalp after I have washed my hair. That is my favorite time to pick. It sounds weird, I know. My husband says I look like a monkey, always picking at my head the way I do. I try to stay cleear of wearing dark colors cause of the dandrif I create. I usually wear white shirts or light grey so the dandruf doesnt show up. I found that when I would wear acrylic nails that I would stop picking so much.
Avatar n tn do activities that are relaxing and stress free. It's been about 2 mnths and hair is already growing back! So if you don't have and thyroid issues, or Alopecia & you're under a lot of stress. Try to relax!
Avatar n tn The places I get multiple hairs growing out of the same follicle is where the dark coarse hair grows. My lower arm is soft light brown with "normal" hair growth but my upper arm is dark coarse hair that grows sometimes with 2-5 hair out of the same follicle. It's kind of weird thinking about it over the years. I've always felt kind of embarrassed by it, but at the same time I didn't even really care lol. Oh well best of luck to all of you and however you deal with it.
Avatar n tn Actually, my doc told me the pain in the hair is not from the hair coming out, but from the scalp, when the hair starts to fall out, there is some serious dry scalp starting to happen, which was also my experience, and that causes some pain. My hair all grew back too and I finally got the HUGE clogs out of the shower drain, now I'm going to try treatment again and all I can think about is going for another buzz cut, which is so unladylike, but I love it.
Avatar f tn I can add that I used to swim in a chlorine pool and now I swim in a salt pool, I personally believe the over sweating from the being in the sun so much this year, caused an excessive of oil, plus where the oily hair patch is is where my hair forms a cowl lick and the most scalp is exposed. I also have been playing with my hair and using a wide tooth comb on my hair which I never used to do - that I have stopped, back to finger styling. I personally believe I overstimulated my scalp.
Avatar n tn I started to lose my hair a week after starting Doryx and has progressively gotten worse. It falls out in handfuls in the shower and whenever I comb my hair. My scalp is tender and itchy at times. I'd like to know when the hair starts to grow back - if it grows back.
Avatar m tn It changes the texture of the hair and the hair becomes thicker (either the fungus/organism is growing on the outside or the hair itself grows thicker/rougher as a symptom). It smells yeasty, fungal. I think I will try using vinegar, then tea tree oil, then benzoyl peroxide. Right guard deodorant is known to cure atheletes foot, so it makes sense that it might work here. I will report back to this thread with results.
Avatar n tn my head still gets a itchy, tingly,feel to it and the hai falls out .I have no new hair is growing but what ihave left is.My scalp is start to show.
1148619 tn?1332014584 I have had to escavate with a pair of sissors. Yet the top of my head is like a road map you can see so much red scalp. Week 21 and hair still falling. Yesterday my hair stylist asked how much longer I had to treat. There are only about two patches of hair on my legs that I must mow, and can forgo the arm pits. What weird side effects!
Avatar f tn I only comb it wet. I can see my scalp more and more, where it used to be hidden with hair. It is scary to me because I am only 32 and do not want to be bald at 38. There is not a family history of it or related illnesses. I was wanting to ask if environmental allergies play a role. I am allergic to some trees and mold that are constant all year where I live. Or..can constant pain cause hair loss. I have a ruptured muscle in my side that healed wrong.
288415 tn?1231634102 the wetness i suffer from is when the weather is cold. The ear gets itchy and when i use a cotton bud it comes out wet but clear. Sometimes. the itch stops when I use anti allergic tabs.Is this a medical condition?
Avatar f tn small red bumps that are rash like, very itchy, after a while it turns into a bluish purple bruise which is worse for my fiance who is a diabetic, I have two small ones that went to a brownish blue bruise..... we have not been to the Dr., yet as I have little faith in them lately.
Avatar f tn I have never known what the heck this is so i have just called it itchy leg syndrome. I dont believe it has anything to do with the clothing i wear, it occurs when i wear shorts, pants, boxers, whatever. I generally get this when i start moving and heating up at work (im a valet), but it drives me crazy and nothing but time seems to help me. It can also appear under any heat circumstance but not in the shower. I hope we can find a solution to this because we really are suffering.
Avatar n tn Since the outbreak I have had itchy palms and occasionally itchy ankles and feet, but my only outbreak of DH is on my elbows. Celiac Sprue or an allergy to wheat can be very silent and difficult to diagnose without the proper blood tests or biopsy of the small intestine. I'm hoping that following a gluten free diet will resolve my DH and itchy hands and feet, not to mention my chronic anemia.
Avatar f tn I also tried acupuncture, chiropractic work, and diet changes. My only diagnosis, which is what I think it is, is brachioradial pruritis, but the only prescription for relief was more creams—no root of cause or lasting cure or solution. Only relief is ice. It started 10 years ago (was living in mountains of Colorado--sunny, but little humidity) in the summer. It comes back every year around July/August and lasts thru December, disappearing just as suddenly as it returned.
Avatar n tn Your best bets are to pick up some Head and Shoulders/Selsun Blue/Nizoral shampoo (Nizoral is anti-dandruff/antifungal, highly recommended), use it regularly (at least a week) while reducing the heat of the water when showering, and your scalp will rebalance and your hair will return to normal. This is the best way to completely treat it. Please don't continue stripping your scalp... It will become a much worse problem if you do.
Avatar m tn Three days ago I started feeling like whatever this was is now in my skin (I'm certain of it), It's under the skin on my face, my scalp, my back, my toes, and my feet. I can feel it crawling in and out of my anus at times also. Went to the dermatoligist today and of couse he says it's my imagination, some people get it. He's subscribed me some DEXEPIN for depression. :( Funny thing is I'm not depressed, my life was quite good until this bug showed up.
Avatar m tn You gave me a good laugh too! I never had thick hair by any means but now it is very thin and I too have peices that stand straight up in the air like I have static all the time. A co-worker asked my why my hair is sticking up and it pissed me off. I have planned on telling her she is rude if she wants to mention it again. My hair looks like sh*t most of the time.
440193 tn?1293814117 Now my left scalp is having more hair than my top and right scalp. I don't know what to do. My doctors saying no problem is now with my health. My dermatologist says the hair density is equal on both sides. But i feel the difference clearly the density is not equal on both the sides of my scalp. now i stopped smoking for one year and my nervous problem i mentioned is looking like reducing constantly upto 80 %.Now my pain in the right side body, face and scalp has been reduced significantly.
Avatar n tn Hey you all this is my first post on this site... I too still have some of the same problems like the peeling lips, swollen lips for about 2 yrs. After doing some strenuous research on the Internet, it seems to me that everyone is experiencing lip eczema. So here's what I found. "Eczema is a Greek word and means " to boil over". It is where skin is inflamed, red, and sore. The skin cracks easily.
Avatar n tn It first appears on my right or left arm as an intensely itchy spot which is impossible to resist scratching and the more you scratch the worse it gets. After scratching, tiny weeping eruptions appear and tends to cause it to spread. In my case, the itching is so intense that I can't get to sleep at night. I too can go for months at a time without this annoying affliction appearing. In my case, this curse started 20 years ago.
Avatar n tn I worked for a very savy poolguy who said the Ph level in the water is what causes itchy conitions and that water from the tap is never Ph correct for the body without conditioning.Some water is worse than others.Get a test kit from pool supply store to check your water.Chlorine also affects Ph, and too much chlorine can also cause itch.
Avatar n tn Oh wow!! This is just crazy. I'm having the same thing. JUST ITCHING!! Why can't any doctor figure this out and help us. It seems like it should be easy to diagnose. I've been to my OBGYN twice with no success from the creams he gave me, including estrogen cream. I'm so frustrated I either want to go to another doc or not go back at all.
