hi there everyone, i'm new to this so you'll have to bear with me

I have an intense itchy scalp, its driving me crazy at the moment, then it will calm down then flare up again, its been checked and i have like red lumps like bites, this has been going on for nearly 2yrs now. The dr gave me kentozole (sp) shampoo which use to help but i seem to be coming immune to it.

A bit of background about myself, i was diagnosed as asthmatic last oct. I originally asked the nurse if i could have an allergy test she told me she couldn't see it because they cost too much, anyway i asked the dr the next time i was in but he said they won't give one coz it doesn't normally show anything up! I felt down, tired, bloated, constipated so i did my own food elimation starting with diary but that didn't do anything, so i moved on to breaded products and hey presto it worked and took all my symptoms away, after doing some research i found out about gluten/wheat intolerance and feel alot better since eliminating them, but i've still got the itchy scalp. Its so intense I could scratch and scratch but i try not too. About 7yrs ago i had an outbreak of urticaria (sp).

I've searched everywhere, been to the dr's tried all sorts of potions but nothing!!
