The skin of the scalp is exceptionally sensitive and so can be vulnerable to irritation more so than just about anywhere else on the body.
For many, an itchy can be quite embarrassing and affect their self-confidence. Scratching your head could be seen as quite socially unacceptable and even further embarrassment could be caused if flaking occurs after the scalp is scratched.
Possible causes of an Itchy Scalp
An itchy scalp may or may not be a result of a skin condition or a rash.
The most common cause of an itchy scalp is dandruff (seborrheic dermatitis), which brings symptoms such as flaking and, of course, itching. Factors such as emotional stress, chemical filled products, excessive washing, lack of washing, skin conditions such as eczema or a generally weak immune system can lead to the onset of dandruff. It can range in severity and so sometimes all that is needed are simple lifestyle changes while other times, in more extreme cases, treatment is required.
Psoriasis on the scalp is also a potential cause of an itchy scalp, which generally will mean the itching scalp is quite long term and there are visible scaly, red patches of skin on the surface of the scalp.
Other Reasons for an Itchy Scalp include more serious conditions such as infection, inflammation or allergies (particularly allergic reactions to chemical-filled hair products).
Seek advice from your local GP if you suspect your itchy scalp may be due to serious underlying problems such as the above.
