Why does my scalp itch so much?
People whose hair is falling out often experience at the same time an itchy scalp condition which can be very frustrating and worrying.
Sometimes hair loss can even be caused by an itchy scalp, but if this is the only reason that triggered baldness, it can be easily resolved, and lost hair will often grow back.
It is vital that you act quickly to properly diagnose the problem and look for suitable remedies and treatments for such a condition.
The following are a few common causes for itchy scalp hair loss and I will tell you also a few solutions that you can take in order to alleviate the problem.
First of all you should check the shampoo that you are using and make sure it is free from aggressive ingredients that could possibly damage the hair follicles, leading to infections such as folliculitis.
You will know you have this condition if you see tiny white-headed pimples around the follicles.
You should treat folliculitis quickly because, if left untreated, can injure the hair follicles, and leave scarring and bald areas on the scalp, something called “cicatricial alopecia“.
Another way to treat this condition is by taking antibiotics, but make sure to talk to your doctor, and to do so under his close supervision.
Among the natural remedies we have emu oil, tea tree oil or lavender oil.
Your scalp can be very itchy also if you have a condition called “ringworm of the scalp”, an external fungal infection whose symptoms include red inflamed areas in different parts of the scalp.
Dandruff and skin peeling with swollen listers are also common symptoms.
Also in this case make sure to use an organic, natural shampoo, and talk to your dermatologist/doctor about the possibility to use antibiotics.
Another condition that causes a strong itchy feeling is called Psoriasis, a common skin disease that causes the cells to fall out prematurely, and be quickly replaced by new ones.
It is characterized by white dandruff and very red skin, and often diffuse hair thinning.
Use either nizoral shampoo or a product containing zinc pyrithione to help you put this condition under control.
Emu oil and tea tree oil can also help, along with avocado oil.
The fourth and last condition that causes your scalp to be itchy is seborrhoeic dermatitis.
It is caused by excessive sebum production (which irritates the sebaceous glands because it contains DHT) and often by a fungus called Pityrosporum Ovale.
In order to get rid of this fungus, use a product containing ketoconazole, an ingredient that kills this fungus quite efficiently.
Good products based on this ingredient are Nizoral and Triatop.
Otherwise, make sure to use an organic natural shampoo for your everyday washing.
