‘Help Needed for Itchy Crawling Sensation, Flaky Scalp and Hair Loss’

HairlossANSWERS - Click to Submit Your Query to Our Hair Loss Experts

Name: Aimee

Question: Hi, I have had a crawling itchy sensation on my scalp for about 8 months my scalp is very sore, my hairline is dry and looks like it’s starting to thin I’ve never had scalp issues before what could this be?

Itchy Head Flaky ScalpAnswer: Hi Aimee, this sounds as if it could be a dermatological scalp condition such as Seborrhoeic Dermatitis or Psoriasis, however, we would need more information before providing a complete diagnosis.

Belgravia’s B4 Shampoo is good for treating and easing the sensations caused by these types of conditions that often cause itching. We know this is easier said than done but do try not to scratch your head as this can potentially lead to infection and/or cause the flaking to spread. This can also cause hair breakage which makes the hair appear thinner as it snaps along the shaft.

We recommend you have a consultation so that a professional hair loss specialist can provide you with both a diagnosis of your complaint and personalised treatment recommendations for both your scalp condition and your hair loss.

You are welcome to visit one of Belgravia’s Central London hair loss clinics or if you are based outside London, it may be easier for you to complete an online consultation form which allows you to upload photos to help with your diagnosis.

In the meantime we recommend using a gentle shampoo daily to ensure the scalp is kept clean but not dried out by any overly harsh formulations.
