Depends: Pruritis that don't nessarily have a rash may be due to generalized dry skin, mites, bugs, lice, liver disorders, medications, eczema. Try locating a possible cause and daily moisterization, avoiding hot showers/baths, and Claritin (loratadine) helps.

Scalp Itching (Definition)

Itching in the scalp can be triggered by a variety of causes. The most common is seborrheic dermatitis, an inflammation of the scalp producing redness and flaking. Psoriasis can involve the scalp in a similar pattern. Stress can manifest as scalp itching, especially on the back of the scalp.

Contact Dermatitis: For itchy rashes, (not due to poison ivy or chicken pox) that occur in a localized area, consider a contact dermatitis. Go fragrance free in shampoos, soaps and laundry detergents and see if that helps. Use soap like unscented Dove and detergents for sensitive skin. Avoid fabric softeners too: one more chemical that can be a possible problem. If no help with that, see doc.

Seborrheic Dermatiti: Most likely you have seborrheic dermatitis. This is ususally treated with tar shampoos or shampoos with antifungal properties. Otc blue selsun type shampoos help this. Denorex type shampoos help. Sometimes steroid foams may be needed in difficult cases. If severe or can't control, see your pcp for a prescription formulaiton or see dermatologist. Don't be a flake, get treated!

Is having an itchy head common after a getting head hit Someone threw a small ball at me and days later felt itchy.

Is having an itchy head common after a getting head hit Someone threw a small ball at me and days later felt itchy.

Itchy scalp: I cannot say that a small ball to the head would normally cause itchiness. A possible explanation if there is swelling in the area is the skin pulling secondary to the inflammation or irritation. Do you see a rash? Not likely head lice or such.

Itchy anus, itchy stomach, itchy head, red lines on stomach. Worm? Candida?

Itchy anus, itchy stomach, itchy head, red lines on stomach. Worm? Candida?

Hard to say: Candida and pinworms both can cause itchy anus (Pruitis Ani), but there are a number of other infections and dermatologic conditions that may be responsible. There is no way to tell from such limited information if all your symptoms are related to one disease (probably not.) You need to see a physician for an examination or consider an online consultation at Health Tap

See a dermatologist: Seborrhea, contact dermatitis to anything used on scalp especially hair color can cause these symptoms. So can head lice. They particularly like the back of scalp and the neck. Their bites are very itchy and we often see small red crusted nodules on upper neck just below hairline.

But hypothyroid symptoms is rashes. And itchy head and back pain and I got all that?

But hypothyroid symptoms is rashes. And itchy head and back pain and I got all that?

I'm not 100% clear?: On what it is that you would like to know, but I think you are concerned that your itching and back pain are potentially related to hypothyroidism. That is a legitimate concern if your hair is especially thin and brittle, if you have very dry skin, and if your depressive symptoms have worsened despite medication. Consitpation, fatigue and weight gain are also symptoms. Ask UR Doc about testing.

Left eye & left nostril very itchy. Head pain on same side. Sinus pain and pressure on left side also. Nostril consistently draining clear water like?

Left eye & left nostril very itchy. Head pain on same side. Sinus pain and pressure on left side also. Nostril consistently draining clear water like?

Sounds like sinus: Problem but occasionally migraines can act this way. You are pregnant and on steroids (for?) so you could be susceptible to certain types of infections. You can safely use saline nasal spray and a mild decongestant nasal spray if needed, inhale warmed humidified air (put towel over your head over sink), but see doc if you get any rash in your facial area, a fever, or drainage yellow/green.

Head & skin has been really itchy why?

Head & skin has been really itchy why?

Lots of possibilitie: There are many possible reasons for your symptoms. The ones that you will need to be aggressive about and treat are lice or scabies. These are both infestations that feed off your blood and can be spread to others by physical contact. Lice in the scalp can often be seen moving on the hair shafts and nits are seen attached to the hair itself. Scabies has burrows often on the fingers and genitals.

Local ice: If the itchy mark just started, then ice applied to the specific area may help the itching. Did you have an insect bite? Watch closely for worsening. If that happens, then it should be evaluated. Hope that helps. Thanks.
