[AlternativeAnswers] Re: extremely itchy, dry scalp

 

Hi Andrea,
What you have sounds very similar to what I developed a few months ago. Sometimes with body changes as we age suddenly skin conditions will develop.
I went to the doctor with similar symptoms and he diagnosed me as having psoriasis or eczema, gave me prescriptions for topical creams to help ease the discomfort but he also refered me to a dematologist. Before going to the doctor, for months I had tried tea tree oil shampoo, and a variety of other things, even rinsing my scalp after washing with diluted apple cider vinegar a one to 5 part water rinse. It releived the itching for me to a degree but the itching patches began popping up on other areas of the body too. As one who has tried multiple home remedies, ointments, hope your doctor can refer you to a dermatologist who can simply tell by looking or even testing what your skin condition may be.
Good luck with this and hope you find relief soon, any skin condition can feel so uncomfortable.
Have a good weekend,
Catherine
