Have you tried: a coal tar shampoo such as T/Gel? These can be very effective, especially when the other shampoos are no longer working. Alternatives (if you have not tried them) are selenium sulfide or salicylic acid shampoos. As with many long term treatments, it is usually best to alternate use of different types so that the scalp does not develop a resistance (or tachyphylaxis) to a single agent. Good luck!

BP Obsession: My advice to you is to stop taking your BP for a while, and certainly do not check it nearly so often. Even if your BP is on the low side, it is generally not a problem if you're not having associated symptoms (dizziness, lightheaded, feel like passing out). If you do have symptoms but normal BP, then it is likely not the BP causing the symptoms. Go out and enjoy life and focus on feeling healthy!

Thyroid problems are: more common in women, especially with increasing age and those with family members who have thyroid issues. In my practice I generally screen with a TSH about yearly or when my patients have signs or symptoms suggesting possible thyroid disorder. If the TSH is out of range or borderline (high or low normal) I will check the free T4 and free T3 (liothyronine). If abnormal, some other tests may be required.
