Itchy Scalp And its Causes!

Itchy Scalp And its Causes!

Irritation on your scalp can be an embarrassing and frustrating problem, especially when you get the continuous urge to scratch your head. There can be lots of causes for an itchy scalp and it is important to identify the cause and treat it accordingly. Some of them include:

Seborrheic dermatitis or dandruff

The symptoms of this condition include redness, irritation and skin flakes. Seborrheic dermatitis can occur in any part of the body due to excessive growth of a fungus called malassezia and when it hits the scalp it is called dandruff. It can be a recurring problem for some, but it is treatable with prescribed shampoos and steroid creams. Cosmetic shampoos targeted to cure dandruff works too.

Head lice

Not only children, but adults can get lice too. It is mistakenly thought that poor scalp health causes lice but actually they breed in clean hair. Small white flakes that look like dandruff are actually lice eggs that cannot be shed off easily; they need to be treated with medicated shampoos containing insecticides pyrethrin or permethrin.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is an autoimmune skin disorder that can occur in any part of the body including the scalp. The symptoms are same as dandruff with raised red patches of skin. People with psoriasis are more likely to incur dandruff and itchy scalp. The exact cause of the disorder is not known, though heredity is a popular belief.

Eczema and allergic reactions

Redness, flakes, irritation are the signs of eczema and allergic reactions. During summers with excessive perspiration the condition worsens. It usually occurs in children but adults can get eczema too. Over the counter medications helps in reducing the severity of the symptoms and gradually heal the condition. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Dear lybrate-user! do not worry about the freckles. Homeopathy can cure it without any side effects. No relationship between iud and freckles. As age advances she got the freckles. 1. Do regular face wash 2. Eat more fruits like apple, grapes. Pomegranate, pineapple 3. Eat more vegetables like carrot, beetroot, lemon, legumes etc. 4. Take more of proteins like soya, peas, amla, 5. Use homoeopathy face wash for fasten the cure 6. Use homoeopathy soap carmino for good complexion 7. Use homoeopathy cream whitch hazel for freckles.

Hello lybrate user your skin is oily and the pores which you see on your nose are nothing but the skin pores which become large in size due to accumulation of sebam in it. You have to control oil secretion of your face. Use besan plus turmeric powder pack twice a week for further details you can consult.

Hello lybrate-user, please stop using those foam and capsules. Better go for natural treatment like: apply aloe vera over your scalp and massage it for 4-5 mins. This will provide nourishment to your scalp skin, hair roots, and make your hair healthy and thick too.

Hi effective method to treat dandruff would be to combine 2 tablespoons of fresh apple juice with 2 tablespoons of warm water. Dab this on the hair and keep it for 10-15 minutes before rinsing. Do this for once or twice a week to cure dandruff. Apply ketoconazole lotion on your scalp once in a week.

In my face so many pimples is there iam irritating see my face please tell what I should do.
These are the methods to treat pimples fastly - • Do not take stress and do exercise daily such as running, jogging and long breathing exercises. • Do YOGASANA daily. Especially do SINHASANA & SARVANGASANA daily. • Use oil free face wash and drink 7 -8 glass of water daily. • Do not touch your pimple because your finger transfer bacteria to it and make it worse. If you touch it then clean your face with water. • Mix black pepper powder in some water to make paste & apply on the pimples three times a week. • Take cucumber and papaya pulp. Mix it well and add 1 tablespoon Turmeric. Make a paste and apply it on face and leave it for 15 minutes. • Steam your face to open the pores, which in turn clear the skin. Steam your face for a couple of minutes. • Take 2 teaspoon of RAKTASHODAK SYRUP of BAIDYANATH company once a day. You can consult me privately for more medicine treatment & doubts. Be healthy.

Excessive exposure to dust, increased oily secretions on scalp, hormonal imbalances, vitamin deficiencies etc are causative factors for hair fall. Our homoeopathy will helps a lot to stop hair fall. Apply fresh onion juice to scalp, leave 20 mins and wash with lukewarm water. That will help to soften hairs.

You may require antibiotics. Also use a good antidandruff shampoo which can aggravate your pimples. Skin lightening creams are recommended only after treating your pimples.

Hi, pimples happen as a result of oily skin. When the sebum secretion of your skin increases, you tend to get pimples. Proper medication will help reduce the pimples and also the scars that you might have post the pimples. You face tends to look dark after some time of washing if because dust particles stick on the oily skin surface and make it look dull. You will need a special face wash which will make your skin less oily and therefore prevent looking dark. Please consult privately so that I can help you in a better way.

Hi. There are four main factors which causes acne: Oil production Dead skin cells Clogged pores Bacteria Factors that may worsen the acne: Androgen hormones, certain medications (drugs containing corticosteroids, androgens or lithium can worsen acne), dietary factors, including dairy products and carbohydrate-rich foods — such as bread, bagels and chips — may trigger acne and Stress can make acne worse. Management: Wash your face with Bakson's Facewash (wash your face with warm water only) and followed by CTMP, i.e., cleansing, toning, moisturising and protection (apply liberally Sunscreen Gel with SPF-30) after washing your face daily. Home-made remedies: - Take 1 tbsp of fuller's earth (multani mitti) + a dash of lime + bit of rosewater – apply this on your face till it gets dried up, then rinse it off. - Take 1 tsp of Alum (or fitkari), make it slightly wet with water and apply this on your wet face, spread it well; let it dry and rinse it off. Alum remove your excessive moisture or oil and it also tightens the skin's tonicity. Medication: You can take homoeopathic medicines – Berberis Aquefolium Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water/ thrice a day (and for local application as well) and Kali Brom. 200/ thrice a day – for 20 days. Also, use Bakson’s Apricot scrub 1-2times a week on the area.

Dear lybrateuser, - Your skin may be sensitive to some ingridient in the cream - for natural glowing skin you have to have a well balanced diet to get all the essential nutrients from your diet - have more of fruits & vegetables, whole grains, legumes, milk & milk products, non veg, sprouts, beans, nuts - wash face with plain warm water 3-4 times a day - have 7-8 glasses of water for sufficient hydration - do regular walking, jogging, swimming, also do yoga& deep breathing to keep fit - sleep well for 7-8 hrs at night - apply a mild moisturizer if there is too much dryness in cold weather.

1. Use mild shampoo to wash hair (you can make your own shampoo using reetha and shikakai at home). 2. Stop using conditioners. Use natural conditioners like egg, yogurt and lemon. 3. Massage your scalp with a mix of oils like olive, coconut, sesame, castor oil at night. This will nourish and strengthen your hair and prevent them from falling.
