Why Is There So Much Dry And Itchy Skin On The Head And Above The Left Ear In This Year?
I am a 24 year old man. It might have been a year like this. On my head there is like itchy dry skin and if rubbed it will drop dry skin flakes. And this is also on the top of my left ear, sometimes after being rubbed if exposed to water it will be very sore. I attach this picture to make it clearer.
Hello, thanks for the question.
Dry scalp, especially if accompanied by itching and white flakes falling like dandruff can interfere with one's confidence. Dry skin can be caused by several things, for example:
Eczema fungal infections, skin reactions in response to the immune system to substances or substances that cause irritation, usually complaints in the form of flaky and itchy scalp. People who have a history or family history of atopy, such as alcohol, can increase the risk of this disease. Psoriasis, skin with thick, itchy, reddish scales. Caused by a disruption in the immune system that causes the skin to grow too quickly and easily peel. Seborrheic dermatitis, the cause is still unknown, but is thought to be caused by inflammation associated with psoriasis, or fungus Malasseziadi scalp. and others. This complaint will usually last a long time and is a recurrence so it requires repeated treatment. Although not dangerous, but if not managed properly can interfere with confidence and can cause infection due to scratching of itchy skin. We recommend using shampoo, cream, or a special gel for dandruff scalp that is sold freely in the market, wash your hair regularly, especially when sweating, and reduce foods that can cause allergies if any. If complaints do not decrease, you should consult a dermatologist to get the right treatment.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
