Flakes falling from your hair? Itchiness of the scalp? Scabs and scales that turn into large flakes? These are all symptoms of scalp problems. If you are experiencing any or all of these, then it is possible that you have seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, scabies or even a fungus infection. This blog post will discuss the causes and treatments for scalp problems so that you can get relief!
It is important to identify what type of scalp problem you are having so that it can be quickly treated. Scabies will cause scabs; seborrheic dermatitis will cause flakes and itchiness while psoriasis produces scaly patches on the skin. There are also more serious symptoms such as bleeding that may indicate scabiosis or a tumor in the brain.
To treat your specific condition, you should consult with a physician about which medications and lotions they would recommend for use at home or if you need additional professional help. For instance, taking antihistamines might help with itching but using ointments might work better against scales due to their thicker texture.
You should also keep your area clean and free of scabs. Cleaning with a moist cloth can help to remove scales, flakes, or scabs from the scalp.
There are also some home remedies such as using vinegar or coconut oil on the scaly areas that might work well for you depending on what type of condition you have.
If you have scabs on my scalp, flakes or itchiness of the scalp then it may be seborrheic dermatitis.
Seborrheic dermatitis is a type of eczema that will cause scaly patches and produce large amounts of thick scales to fall from the head. This is caused by an overgrowth in cells called yeasts on the skin which produces keratin (a protein). It can happen anywhere but usually presents itself with red cheeks, nose and ears as well as around eyebrows.
If you have scabs on your scalp, then it may be psoriasis. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder that will produce scaly patches and scales resulting in a buildup of skin cells on the head. It can happen anywhere but usually presents itself with red cheeks, nose and ears as well as around eyebrows. This condition mostly affects adult males who are over 18 years old and females after menopause. If you notice any type of fungus growing from your scalp, this might indicate one of three things: scabies which would present scabbiness all over the body (not just scalp), seborrheic dermatitis or ringworm that produces circular lesions if left untreated for too long.
