I am in a pickle. My entire scalp and even my eyebrows are almost continuously itchy. This itching occurs especially often during physical activity where the body temp rises in the head. My hair has been shedding rapidly at the same time, specifically in the past few months. Hair has been pouring out of my head, but evenly throughout the scalp, making doctors skeptical of my concern. I have seen a number of doctors, none of them with advice other than propecia or rogaine. The itching has stumped them a well, causing me to be referred to a dermatologist, which cannot get me in until November.
Please let me know if you have heard of a similar case or if there is anything you would recommend. Thank you!
I am not sure how I can be of help if you have already seen a number of doctors. You are doing the right thing by seeing a dermatologist. Keep the appointment and let me know what you find.
Hair loss is mostly due to genetic causes in men. Do you see a particular pattern developing on your scalp? Generally, itchy scalp or skin may be a sign of infection (such as fungus, scabies, etc) / irritation (from chemicals, shampoos, soaps, etc). Your doctor (not me) can tell you if you have an infection.
