eczema on my scalp
The skin on my scalp is full of eczema!!
When I work out, the sweat pours and it starts to get so itchy. I can’t wear black because people think its dandruff. Huge flakes of skin drops from my head. How can that be dandruff.
Now when I am shooting I make sure that my hair line is covered. Its because you can see flakes of skin trying to come off from the scalp. I’ve also had a hair cut that will limit the amount of hair line that can be seen.
Sometimes the itch gets so bad I will scratch my head and it looks as though I have lice. So people who don’t know me move away from me.
Now parts of my scalp is weeping from the scratching. I can see this because it at my hair line and when I run my fingers though my hair some parts of it is wet from the weeping.
I have changed my shampoo but nothing seemed to work and dandruff shamppo does not work either. Probably its because its not dandruff. DUH!
I found a shampoo called stieprox. It does not leave my scalp dry like some shampoos and dandruff shampoo.
Now I’m treating my scalp with a steriod lotion my dermatologist gave me.
But what I really wanted to say is that my lymph nodes on my neck are swollen from the eczema that I have on my scalp. So I feel like I’m having the flu without the flu. I mean there’s no sniffing or coughing just the sluggish, can’t do anything, joints feel uncomfortable, hot cold hot cold, flu like feeling. There are also times when I can get a fever as well. If I don’t take care of my scalp it will somehow turn into flu and fever. Or any part of my skin for that matter.
I’ve kept on working when I’m like this. Work does not stop when you’re ill. Come the weekend or a break I just bum out and stay in bed and sleep the weekend away. Once the skin is better I feel better.
Is there anyone out there that has a suggestion for eczema on the scalp. I would really appreciate some suggestion I can use.
