Potential causes for an itchy scalp

There are several causes that can cause you to have an itchy scalp. This causes are seborrheic dermatitis, dandruff, psoriasis, tinea capitis and head lice, which are explained below.

Seborrheic dermatitis- Seborrheic dermatitis is a condition of the skin that mainly attacks the scalp. It causes reddened skin, scaly and greasy patches and could lead to dandruff. The seborrheic dermatitis may go away by treatment or you may need a repeated treatment. Daily treating and cleansing with a healthy shampoo can reduce oiliness and dead skin buildup.

Dandruff- Dandruff is a very common condition, which can lead to an itching feeling on the scalp. The condition is not very dangerous or contagious to treat. And is easy to treat without a doctor at home. To treat the itchy feeling and flakes on the scalp you can use an effective shampoo, conditioner or lotion.

More causes

Psoriasis- Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes raised, reddish and scaly patches on the skin. Psoriasis is a disease you can’t get from other people or animals. At this moment experts don’t have one decisive understanding of what are exactly the causes of this disorder, but they think it is more likely that you can get it if someone in your family has it. We can recommend using our hair growth stimulating shampoo to control scalp psoriasis. And if it does not work after regular sessions (half a year) then we recommend you to make an appointment with an dermatologist.

Tinea capitis- Tinea capitis is a fungal infection known as ringworm. Tinea capitis can extend deep in your hair follicle and cause round patches of hair loss that increase in size in a matter of time. Also, rash may appear with black dots or a stubbly appearance. If you have a ringworm infection of the skin, you can use an anti fungal formula to get rid of it. Products as shampoo could reduce the itchy feeling on your scalp but the ‘ringworm’ organism sits deep in the hair follicle. This means that you need to use an effective anti-fungal medication to get rid of it.

Head lice- Head lice are common among children but also on adults. Having lice has nothing to do with unhealthy hair and it is more likely that lice will appear in clean hair. If you think you got head lice we recommend you to look closely at it. If you can discover little nits (eggs) attached to your hair. Than you should use special shampoo, which is effective against lice.
