Title: Eczema on Scalp
Post by: AEC on Tuesday August 11, 2009, 11:49:36 PM
Lately my scalp has been very itchy and I noticed that I have been dropping lots of flakes after I scratch it. Due to eczema on my face and neck, I am suspecting that it has spread to my scalp.

Anyone have any suggestions for preventions, treatments and to relieve the itch?

This week my scalp has been more itchy than usual. My eczema on my scalp is getting worse!!

Once again, anyone have any suggestions for preventions, treatments and to relieve the itch? It's getting really annoying and the amount of dandruff I'm shedding is equally embarassing.

I had eczema on my scalp when I was a young teenager and used polytar shampoo. It smells of burning but it did the job. More recently I have suffered from eczema on my scalp and have tried nizarol but it didnt seem to work. I am more than certain it caused by hair products. I am currently using V05 fibre putty and it is definately drying out my scalp. Watch your hair products if you use them maybe its the cause.

Hey, some of you ladies must have some more ideas about scalp eczema?  This is really becoming a problem for me, I used to just shave my head so that I could apply creams and ointments to my scalp to control the eczma there, but I have been trying to grow my hair out and have been doing so for nine or ten months, so I would hate to shave it off again at this point it's looking really good. :P

My scalp is all raw and I'm scratching the hair off in some places, and starting to get infections, ugh.  Please help! 

I haven't tried any coal tar shampoos yet, my skin is very sensitive and normally what I use to wash my hair is a simple pine tar soap which is just pine tar, olive oil, and salt.  Are there any coal tar shampoos anyone would reccomend that don't have any nasty chemicals/scents/weirdstuff in them?

Thanks!

Have been washing my head with table salt and then moisturising it after with something I got from Boots
