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 n tn Yes, I have recently had the exact same problem with balding spots on a thick head of hair; I don't know why the small bald spots occurred in my head around January '08 but it seem to be thinning at the top a few months prior to that. I do perm my hair professionally and sometimes non-professionally every five to six weeks, but I believe hair color was the perp. for the bald spots.
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.
Avatar m tn After a few months i started having a burning sensation,some very small bumps and redness on the mid scalp.The pain became unberable.I also had some crust when i scratched it with my nails but i couldn't see any dundruff.I was also left with thinning hair.I used ketokonazole and nizoral and after around 2-3 weeks the redness and the burning sensation went away.My hair never came back though.Now i'm 21 and i've been trying to regrow my hair.
Avatar n tn Small bumps on scalp, followed by a tightening or stretching feeling on scalp that leads to headaches, seems to be aggravated by heat, spreads to cartilage on ears and burns and irritates, especially tops of the ears, appearance is pink. Hairs has become dry and brittle and breaks off easily, esp in the shower. Resulting in overall hair thinning. Occasional pain in inner ear, which can be described as fairly sharp pain.
137539 tn?1344383528 Maybe you can put some kind of an oil conditioner treatment and leave on overnight. This may help to sooth scalp. My scalp is so dry now and I have dandruff from hell. If I bend over and sctrtch it's like it's snowing!! Somebody posted about their ears peeling and mine are too.
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 f tn my front hairline and on the top/crown only. My scalp in these areas becomes: very oily, appears pink in color and itches uncontrollably at times. The hair that falls out is always from these areas as well and contain a small sebum plug on the hair follicle. Other times where the area itches I find yellowish sebum plugs right where it itches. I also have several rud bumps on my scalp in this same area as well. What is going on and how do I stop it?
Avatar m tn My question is because from a research stand point carpet beetles hide under flooring (carpet and linoleum or wood) and come up to feed, can or would they ever do this on a human's scalp because research says they do eat hair? It even states that taxidermists use them sometimes to get the hair off of animals.
Avatar f tn I had a shooting pain in the back left portion of my head. It was on and off for several years. I also noticed that I would get bumps on my scalp that would bleed if I picked them off. I thought these were unrelated issues, but I tried a new shampoo. I went and got a bottle of Denorex shampoo (with Salicylic Acid as the active ingredient). I used that everyday for about 3 months and then scaled back to 3-4 times a week.
Avatar n tn I am 43years old and have picked my entire life. I have small but permanent scars around my chin, neck, upper arms and even legs. It starts as a small pimple or perhaps and ingrown hair on leg or just running my fingers through my hair on the scalp and finding any "spot" and picking it. I have always picked my scabs off also. This has resulted in sores taking forever to heal (weeks) and them 70% of the time leaving a small permanent scar.
73878 tn?1214056807 Unless your white counts are way down nowadays, I would make them look for other causes of these problems. Robin.... Most folks just have a thinning of the hair on tx. It falls out normally anyways but it is normally replaced right away. On tx, it seems that the hair on our head just doesn't grow.....hardly at all. But the hair everywhere else does.....BIG time. You may find some new "weapons" when you look at your eyelashes. My fingernails also grew FAST on tx. So....
Avatar m tn Recently though I itched my scalp and a fairly large chunk came out with hair folicles still in it. I have also felt some small bumps and ungulations on the top of my head. I am starting to be a bit concernd.
1548538 tn?1293875433 S doesn't do anything but increase the oils on my scalp and Nizoral only works if I wash my hair daily, which makes my hair a whole mess of textures and dryness. I've dried a mix of baking soda and apple cider vinegar and it's made my hair smell for weeks and makes my scalp extremely sensitive and dry.
Avatar f tn This started itching on and off about 2 months ago. There is bumps all over. Some are small and some are like Whelps very large. My hair fell out in large amounts suddenly. A few weeks ago. Smaller spots on the top of my head and behind my ears. Even my ears are itchy. I went to the doctor yesterday. With my diabetes, thyroid and hair problems they didn't even look at it. Just said that I should see a specialist. It could take 3 weeks to get an appointment with a dermatologist.
Avatar n tn be patient, I know you've read and answered this a million times probably, but DOES HAIR REALLY GROW BACK? I've heard a different stories on this. Yes, I am flipped out about it. I didn't think vanity would be a big deal, but .... What's the consensus? Has anybody had their's return enough to say "Oh, yeah, there is a difference". It's tough, because being 42, I'm not expecting my hair to do well anyway on its own, let alone after an interferon assault.
440193 tn?1293814117 My hair thinning has been only on the right side also. I also have a fairly large forehead and a now receeding hair line. I've been using Rogaine on the hairline at my temples. I'm seeing regrowth there. I've been putting Rogaine on the right side of my head, but I'm not sure if it is even doing anything. I also have hair thinning on the right arm. Even my pubic hair is noticably less on the right! Aside from that, my 10 year old (super preemie) has a larger forehead than mine.
Avatar n tn The last year I have suffered from scalp redness, tenderness, red spots, red bumps with salt like granules at the end of the hair, black blue looking hairs that are thin then texture gets thicker, tingling like crawling, itching and hair thinning, hair loss, oily flakey and irritated scalp, black dots underneath hair and over all itchy skin. I was diagnosed by a GP and a Derm with Seborrheic Dermatitis and put on a corticosteroid solution and dhs shampoo.
Avatar n tn About 9-12 months ago, I noticed that I seemed to be losing more hair then usual. It seemed to come on suddenly, but it wasn't as dramatic as 300 hairs a day or anything. Anyway, I tried counting, and didn't feel like I was losing a lot more then 100 a day, so I kind of ignored it. Then I noticed that I could no longer pull my hair back because so much was missing around the the temples (only really notice it by the temples).
Avatar m tn I feel strange feeling on my scalp at the front occasionally, it feels like tightness and sometimes like a pin *****. After showering I notice some small bumps through hair that seem to go away after a little bit, so I am not sure if this is just goosebumps as I have been using cold showers due to a faulty hot water heater. At the 5.
Avatar f tn No, you will not go bald, but you can get severely thinning hair. Most people that have this problem do better on a T3 T4 thyroid med. Also, make sure your iron levels are good. I take Evening Primrose Oil, which does not stop hair loss but nourishes the hair and helps soften it.... as hypothyroidism causes your hair to become dry brittle and break. I also take 5,000 of biotin each day. I was taking the capsules and there was no improvement after 6 months.
Avatar n tn When i turned 19 i got lazy and decided to go back to my short hair but when i got my first haircut i noticed some small wrinkles on my scalp i don't know how they got there but i fear it might have something to do with the hair net. That's just what i think though i haven't found anything online to support it but i have also noticed that black people seem to have this condition more than others.
Avatar n tn In last week been having an itchy burning scalp,noticing red pimple like bumps, n noticeable thinning hair all over my scalp, I work where there isno air conditioning, so always pull back, n shower3 times a week....
Avatar f tn it started at the beginning of the year when I was going through a bit of a stressfull time and my eyelids started getting REALLY dry and wake up with just complete dry flakey skin on the eyelids. I always had a very small dry patch on my right cheek which has never worried me. nothing seemed to work and and stung like hell everything I tried to put cream on it... untill I came across a chinese ointment that seem make it less dry and flakey so I kept that up...
Avatar f tn Inflammatory deeper tinea barbae is caused primarily by zoophilic dermatophytes. This variety, termed a kerion, is the most common clinical presentation. Most patients show solitary plaques or nodules; however, multiple plaques are relatively common. Usually localized on the chin, cheeks, or neck, involvement of the upper lip is rare. The characteristic lesion is an inflammatory reddish nodule with pustules and draining sinuses on the surface.
