For the past couple of weeks I have an unusually itchy scalp. Mainly in the back of my neck. It itches and itches and itches and itches and I don't know why. I've already been checked for lice and its not dandruff. There's no bumps, no redness, no rash, no blisters at all on my scalp. Just an infuriating itch. Please help.
I also have something wrong with my lips that started around the same time. I don't know if it is a similar condition that ropes back to my scalp problem or if it is just a whole other issue. There is a faint redness all around the border of lips and my lips are also peeling. I've tried chapstick but it didn't do much.

  • I had the same symptoms. You cold have a soy allergy. Soy is in just about everything these days, including chicken and beef. In addition to the soy allergy, you will have reactions to any kind of bean because it is the protein in the soy bean and other beans that give you the reactions. Try eliminating any kind of soy and all beans from your diet to see if this is the problem. Furthermore, if it is not soy, then eliminate one food source at a time from your diet and see if yor itching goes away. Do the same with your laundry detergents and bath soaps as well as dish washing liquids/household cleaners. For one thing more, do the same for tooth paste, colognes/perfmes, deoderants.

  • Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin disorder that mainly affects your scalp, causing scaly, itchy, red skin and stubborn dandruff. In infants, seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp is known as cradle cap. Seborrheic dermatitis can also affect your face, upper chest, back and other areas of your body that have many oil (sebaceous) glands.If these symptoms are there than it might be Seborrheic dermatitis.
