  • Itchy scalp can be a frustrating problem. There are several things which can cause it. Dandruff is the most common.Dandruff is caused by overgrowth of yeast on your scalp.The yeast triggers inflammation and itching. It usually causes flaking, but not always. When the scalp is red and flaky from dandruff we often call it seborrheic dermatitis, but the cause is the same.Allergic contact dermatitis is also a common cause of itchy scalp. Sometimes people develop an allergy to their hair color or to their shampoo, conditioner, or hair products. This is often intensely itchy and sometimes spreads to the back of your neck or your back (depending on the length of your hair).I will suggest you to go through Doctors suggestion..Consult Doctor and share your result..
