I've been having an itchy scalp for the past 3 days and it is bothering me a lot! At first I thought it would be lice but there has been no sign of nits. Like at all. I check everyday and still nothing. I even used lice killing shampoo and the itch is still there. Sometimes it feels like something is crawling or if something bit me? I thought it would be dandruff but I don't think it would be this bad. This will not go away. If anyone can help, please!

  • It's very likely that you have a fungus infection. You need to see your pharmacist for an anti-fungal that you can use twice a day, for a couple of weeks, to quash the infection. However: if that does not bring you dramatic relief, find a good Family Practice Doctor, or, a Dermatoligist. Finally, you could have a simple allergic reaction to something. Have you changed shampoos, lately ? For right now, STOP using your shampoo, and use a dish liquid, about one to two times per day, and then, use the antifungal, per your pharmacist's instructions. Thanks.
