I tend to
feel very itchy on my scalp
can't help but scratch it ALL THE TIME
- when I'm at work, when I'm sitting on my bed - my fingers keep reaching
in there and picking at it. Does anyone know what I can do to reduce the
pimples on my scalp and to prevent the itching. I'm trying this tar
shampoo and I tried Nizoral but I'm not seeing enough of a difference. Is
it diet related?
finding a couple (2 to 3) new pimples on my scalp
each week. They are not concentrating in a specific area--they are
appearing randomly on all parts of my scalp. I have never had an
acne problem. They do go away after a few days--but, this is quite
bothersome. My hairstylist noticed them as well.
bumps on scalp for over 5 years!!
They are about the
size of a pencil eraser
and ive had them for 5 years now! I also have been getting pimples in the
back of my neck and scalp and are burning and itching! im 15 and im pretty
scared! help me! and my mom says its nothing so she doesn't wanna take me
to the doctor!
My friend has bumps on his scalp that drive him nuts and itch like crazy.
I have spent a great deal of time popping them and trying to figure out
why they keep coming back. Sometimes he gets a
really hard lump under his skin that get bigger and bigger until its
out one of the hair follicles.
Its pretty gross unless you're like me and get a sick satisfaction from
popping ingrown hairs and pimples. Some of the bumps are ingrown hairs but
then some are just puss pockets under the skin.
I have a couple theories as to why he gets them. However, I'm just
wondering if any one else has found a cure for the pesky buggers.
One of my theories is that he cant scratch his head. I think this causes
his hair follicles to clog where as an AB person would be able to scratch
the itchy build up away, thus keeping the follicle clean and clog free.
I also think that the under growth hair (the hair that is regrowing) is
curling slightly and growing into the skin instead of straight up out of
the follicle. I would assume that an AB person would get a pain in their
scalp and itch it, which would maybe straighten out the hairs growth path.
These are just some of my thoughts on the problem. Any advice or thought
on the matter are welcome and appreciated! Thanks
Iím a african american female 27yrs old that is

You need to see a good dermatologist. You may have a variety of conditions
that are dangerous and will cause you to eventually lose hair. The
internet is not a place to gamble the future of your hair and your health.
I have had a scalp
disorder (that sounds similar to the disorder you describe on your
website) for about five years now. It has gotten increasingly worse, and
I have been on several anti-biotics (including
minocycline and cirpo) that work while on it but do not cure the disorder
permanently. I have had a biopsy that reveals that some kind of
bacteria is causing the problem.
I am eager to kick
this problem, but also somewhat wary of online products. I came across
your website recently and thought that someone that has actually suffered
from a similar problem might be able to help. so I was hoping that you
could email me and further describe your condition so that I can decide
whether your cure might be helpful to me. Please let me know.
My scalp itches terribly in one spot. I'm not sure how to tell whether
it's dandruff, dry scalp, an allergy or some silly nervous condition that
makes me scratch it.
Basically, there is a large spot behind my right ear, down by the
neckline, that itches. It has for, I'd say, several years. When I scratch
it, usually vigirously, flakes fall out onto my right shoulder, though I
suspect these are just skin cells. I scratch it until I come up with red
beneath my fingernails on a regular basis.
Info that may or may not be relevant... I've never
noticed flakes or itching in other areas of my head.
I've been told a few times by different hair cutters that I have unusually
thick hair down in that area between my ears. It's difficult to see much
of the scalp by parting the hair there.
Also, a few years ago, I became suddenly allergic to something in makeup,
don't know if whatever that was could be in shampoo too. The weird thing
is that any sudden stressful, nervous, anxious situation will cause the
area to itch overwhelmingly, and pretty much if I become stressed, I am
immediately vigorously scratching this spot on my head. I'm right handed
and this is the most convenient spot on my head to reach.
If I'm scratching it when I'm nervous, does that mean there's nothing
really wrong and that it's irritated because I'm scratching it, not the
other way around? If that's the case, I'm worried there's nothing to help
it. It's very hard not to scratch an itch.
Over the years, I've tried dandruff shampoos, dry scalp shampoos,
hypoallergenic shampoos, tea tree oil, deep cleaning, deap conditioning,
etc., with no improvement. I pay very special attention to rinsing this
area, since it's more difficult than the top of my head, to make sure that
there isn't a buildup of stuff happening there.
Also, I'm not really sure who has domain over your scalp. Does a
dermatologist deal with hair issues? Would I be laughed out of the office
and told to go get selsun blue? Can they help at all if it's a nervous
HEAD ITCHES A LOT HELP!!?

i have tried to find answers for over 7 years,
both with GP's and also more recently with a dermatologist, still without
any answers. I have a very concerning issue with my scalp, across my
hairline, crown and generally across the top of my scalp i suffer from
itching, often so bad i cant sleep and it affects my concentration at
work. I have small white grain like bits forming on my scalp.
These sand like bits are sometimes loose on my scalp but also attached to
When my hair comes out, which has become more apparent since my condition
has worsened over the past 6 months and is now also a major concern, there
is a build up of white substance on the follicle.
My hair also becomes very greasy very quickly, within 24 hours of washing
it, my hair becomes greasy and within 48 hours it looks disgusting. I also
suffer from very tender small spots within my scalp, which have a
yellowish appearance. These are not that common, around 3 - 4 a week.
I am a male 29 years old, living a healthy lifestyle , good diet and also
I do get dry skin very easily, i moisturize all the time. I researched
into this condition and i believe itís a fungal condition.... but Nizorel
doesnt seem to be helping to clear the condition.
I have a problem that I can't find out what it is. Two days ago, I went to
get a haircut and
my stylist found a lot of real small bumps
stuck to my hair. She
said they looked like lice, but they aren't. These are really stuck to my
hair. Each strand of hair has about ten to
twenty of these mysterious bumps. I don't know what they are or
how to get rid of them. Please help me to find an answer. Thank you for
