Causes of inflammation and redness of the scalp

Although there’s no medical condition called scalp inflammation, a variety of issues can cause your scalp to become inflamed, itchy and uncomfortable.

A common cause of scalp inflammation is seborrheic dermatitis, which can cause red, scaly patches that develop on your scalp. Other conditions that can cause inflammation are folliculitis and ringworm (tinea capitis).

Seborrheic dermatitis is a common skin disease that causes an itchy rash with flaky scales. It causes redness on light skin and light patches on darker skin.

Folliculitis is an inflammation of the hair follicles. The inflammation can appear anywhere in the body, where hair is growing.

Tinea capitis is a yeast infection on the scalp. Often young children suffer from it and it is contagious.

In some cases the inflammation can lead to hair loss. You need to treat your hair well, to regain new strong hair. That is why we advise you to use the Neofollics Hair Growth Shampoo.
