Overcoming Itching On The Scalp Due To Dandruff?
Hello, I want to ask what shampoo / hair treatment is suitable for scalp itching due to dandruff?
The onset of itching on the head can indeed be caused by dandruff. Dandruff itself is caused by skin growth and loss of scalp cells too quickly, this condition is thought to be caused by oil glands that produce too much skin oil.
In these conditions the following handling steps can be tried:
Wash your hair with anti-dandruff shampoo at least 3 times a week or as recommended by your doctor. Limit consumption of foods high in sugar, spicy, or high in salt. Avoid excessive scratching of the scalp Manage stress well. Eat foods that contain vitamin B, such as eggs, cheese, and fish. Some dandruff can be triggered by diseases such as seborrheic dermatitis or fungal infections of the scalp so you should consult a doctor if the complaint persists or even worsens after the above treatment.
Your doctor will ask for a history of complaints, conduct a physical examination or supporting examination if needed. Supporting examinations that can be recommended by doctors is skin scrapings or wood lamp test.
If indeed the condition is caused by a fungal infection, your doctor may prescribe a special anti-fungal shampoo to treat your complaints and prescribe an antihistamine itching if needed.
