Hi - new here - back in late May or early June, I thought an insect may have bitten or stung my head - (I had thrown on a plastic poncho that had been sitting in my garage for who knows how long :rolleyes: so I could work in the rain in my garden.) A few hours later, I bent over and noticed that made my head hurt. When I sat on my couch, the area near the top of my scalp felt very tender. I felt around my head and noticed a little swollen nodule behind my left ear. I put ice on that, and it eventually went away. However, the top of my head began to itch. Because of the location and I have a LOT of hair, I couldn't see what was itching. I asked my OB/GYN (on my routine visit) if she could see anything - she said she thought it appeared to have puncture wounds; but she didn't know of anything anyone could do for me. (We were both assuming had it been a poisonous spider bite, I definitely would've known by then.) The ONLY other people who have noticed anything at all are my hairdressers; one suddenly didn't want to reschedule any appointments with me :eek: and the next was able to tell me it looked like a blister - she saw at least 2. The wonderful dermatologist :cool: I went to just glanced at my head and stated that he 'could start scratching somewhere and eventually it too, would start to itch to appear as a sore' Thanks, Doc! (My hair around the areas that are always itching has broken off REALLY short - so I can definitely feel that.) I really don't know what he thought was the matter, but sent me off with a prescription (probably because he thought that was what I wanted.) Well, his RX has not worked. (Betamethasone Dipropionate lotion.)This spot on my scalp continues to alternate between being itchy and painful. I've tried numerous shampoos; tea tree oil, vinegar and nothing seems to make this go away. Has anyone ANY suggestions? (Sorry to be so chatty...:)Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
