‘Is Constant Itch at Back of Head Related to My Hair Loss?’

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

Name: Tom

Question: I’ve had a constant itching in the back of my head for a couple of weeks now – is it likely to be related to my hair loss? I have thinning hair that’s been getting worse recently but it’s going on top, not at the back of my neck?

Answer: Hi Tom. The itching you’re experiencing is almost certainly not related to your hair loss.

Is The Itch At the Back of My Head Connected to My Hair Loss?From what you say about thinning on top, it sounds as if you are showing signs of Male Pattern Baldness. This genetic hair loss condition only affects the areas around the top of the scalp and hairline, not the back of the head. It also does not cause itching, only thinning hair due to the miniaturisation process associated with male hair loss.

There can be various causes of an itchy scalp, including the back of the head; these include scalp conditions such as dandruff and Seborrhoeic Dermatitis, the weather and using a shampoo that is too strong. If you have recently had a tattoo done in that area, that could also be the cause of constant itching.

hair loss specialist will be able to diagnose your scalp condition and recommend effective male hair loss treatments to help prevent further shedding and promote regrowth, should you decide to address your thinning. Whilst we do treat scalp problems here at Belgravia, if the persistent itching turns out to be something else, the two issues may need to be treated separately, in which case your specialist will advise you speak to your doctor about it.
