Almost 2 years now i have had terrible burn, sting and itch on my scalp and have lost about 40% of my hair, no derms, docs of any kind have an answer other then its neurologic. Given referral to an accupuncturist but scalp is pink, hair continues to thin, tired and fatigued, it came on sudden and has not abated. Anyone else with this odd affliction?

  • Maybe scarring alopecia. Do the edges of the bald areas look ragged? But I don't know why a doctor wouldn't have diagnosed this.

  • its diffuse hair loss all over the scalp with the crown and nape hit the hardest, two docs said no scarring alopecia and would nto biopsy said it would not show anything - I dont have spots or patches of hair loss just like someone plucked out hairs from each square inch ofmy head, like half of them.

  • There are several situations and conditions that involve both scalp and hair. Sometimes, medical issues (hypothyroidism, going off of birth control pills, pregnancy, female or male pattern alopecia, or taking certain medications) can cause hair loss. In these cases, scalp itching, tingling, tenderness, or even pain can sometimes accompany a bunch of hair follicles dying off at one time. Sometimes your scalp will also itch when the hair is growing back. This is normal and once whatever the issue causing the hair loss is resolved, this should stop. In the meantime, you can use natural, non harmful anti-inflammatories like tea tree or jojoba oil to soothe inflammation and help with the symptoms.Sometimes, though, there is a dermatological problem with the scalp that is also causing the hair loss. In these cases, the two are often strongly correlated and related to one another. So, in order to treat the hair loss, you'll need to also treat your scalp and restore it to a healthy condition and vice versa.newmarket criminal lawyer

I have had the same thing and nobody knows what it is. It started about 1 year ago. I have always had thick hair, but it is now noticeable where my hair is fallling out. My scalp feels like it is sunburned on the very top of my scalp, running from front to back. I don't know what to do, but everything I have tried, has not worked. The dermatolist said to use the supplement Biotin, been doing that for a year, and nothing helps....Any ideas?

It is getting worse in the front on top of my head, where my part is, the crown of my head is where the worse soreness is and alot of hair loss. Very thinning, but no patches of hair loss

  • Just seeing if you're still experiencing this? I've had it for 6 months now (pain, burning, itching, etc.) with shedding all over. No one can give me answers either.

  • I suffered terrible burning scalp. Was taking vitamins as I also suffer hairloss. Was told to stop taking vitamins, I did and the burning sensation disappeared.
