[AlternativeAnswers] itchy head & neck

 

I have been fortunate in my life to never have had dandruff, and I
still don't have dandruff, but I have a VERY itchy head. History:
about 4 months ago, my daughter brought home headlice. This is
something I've also never had before. I picked up the lice from her
before we even knew she had them. It turned out that I was quite
allergic to the bites, and my head felt like it was on fire from the
biting. We both used a therapeutic shampoo and conditioner to get rid
of the lice (Dessert Essence Tea Tree, if anyone's interested - it
really worked!). However, the itching has remained. I ended up with
a dermatitis of some kind, and all the GP has to offer is steroids or
medicated shampoos. I don't normally use shampoos anyway, but had to
use the therapeutic shampoo to get rid of the lice without resorting
to chemicals. My hair is still quite healthy, but the itching is
driving me mad. I find I am scratching in my sleep, and have had a
series of skin infections on my scalp, which are quite painful at
times. Does anyone have any suggestions for a non 'drug' solution to
this problem? I think if I could just break the cycle of the itching,
that it could have a chance to heal... is there some kind of herbal I
could use on my scalp?

Thanks in advance,
Andrea
