I HAVE A BURNING SCALP,CREPY CRAWLY SENSATION WITH MASSIVE HAIR LOSS X 2 YEARS.


BEEN TO MD, DERMATOLOGIST,NEUROLOGIST, GYNOCOLOGIST AND NOW ACCUPUNCTURIST. I STARTED PREMARIN LAST YEAR WHICH HELPED FOR A BIT BUT NOW IT IS AS BAD. ACCUPUNCTURE AND HERBS X 1 WEEK WITHOUT RELIEF. I DID HAVE SWINE FLU SUMMER OF 2009 AND THEN SCALP ISSUES 6 MONTHS LATER. I MAY GO TO AN ALLERGIST. ANY SUGGESTIONS

Itching and Crwaling
by: Anonymous

Sounds similar to my situation. If not a scalp problem then its alopecia kind of thing. Or you might also have insulin resistance + PCOD (mild). Massive itching in Alopecia is due to the contraction of hair follical causing itching and crawling.

Homepathy helps. Also tell all these to a dermatologist about itching due to alopecia and root shrinking.

My itching was too bad. It used to wake me up in the middle of the night. Its been one year on homeopathy. But the day I leave it, it ccomes back in 10 dyas. So far I too dont have a permanant solution.

Remeides for Burning Scalp
by: Grandma

Hello Jackie,

First, I want to say I'm sorry it took a few days to get back to you, I was out all weekend enjoying our beautiful fall and Harvestfest.

I can't imagine how frustrated you must be, with being an RN you sure have been to about every Doctor and I'm sure have had about every test and still dealing with these kinds of symptoms.

My first thought when I read your submission was Lyme's Disease, but I'm sure you've been tested for that. My second thought was Adrenal Deficiencey. Hair loss can be a sure sign of adrenial deficiency. The underlying cause can be stress and I'm sure you've been under a lot of stress. The first thing I'd suggest it to take some Siberian ginseng and see if you start to feel better.

The second thing I'd try mixing a few drops of Tea-tree oil with some olive oil and massage it into the scalp a couple of nights to see if it will relieve the burning and itching on your scalp. Tea-tree oil has been shown to be a successful remedy against skin bacteria and fungi.

Then in the morning, after shampooing your hair (with a gentle shampoo)and rinsing, I'd mix a 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar with 1/2 cup of water and rinse it down over the scalp. I'd do this a few days in a row and then reduce to a couple of times a week to see if it relieves the awful symptoms you're dealing with.

Once you get the symptoms under control and you want to kick-start the hair growth you could try this remedy:
Mix together 10 tbsp. of rum, 5 tbsp. of olive oil and 1 egg. yolk. massage the mixture into your scalp twice a week in the evening. Wash it out the next morning.
