I have a dry scalp which itches severe after washing hair. I have hair loss too. I'm planning to use 5% Minoxidil. Can I use Tgel and minox together?

I have a dry scalp which itches severe after washing hair. I have hair loss too. I'm planning to use 5% Minoxidil. Can I use Tgel and minox together?

Can use both: T-gel can be used once to twice per week. While Minoxidil must be used twice per day. I can't say if you will have any problems with using them both using that schedule. Of course washing off the Minoxidil every day soon after applying you will not benefit from it even if you are only a washing with water.

Cholinergic?: If he has itchy bumps also, then it is called cholinergic urticaria which flares up after the body gets heated up then cools off. This can often be prevented by taking an antihistamine such as zyrtec (cetirizine). It may go away by itself with time but is not a serious health issue.

Here are some...: Severely scratching the itchy area may induce skin injury and subsequent tissue inflammation. Without a direct look, it's hard to offer the intended right Dx. Clinically, eczema, psoriasis, or foreskin-related disorders need to be considered. For temporary care, apply topical cream with antibiotics, anti-fungal, with steroid - hydrocortisone sill help ease the discomfort. If not improved, seek doc

Infestation vs rxn: There are numerous things in our environment both living & not that can cause this. Scabies (human mite) infested a 90yo acquaintance for years before a derm recognized this mostly kid problem. Soaps/dryer sheets/shampoos/ body washes/ deoderants/foods/seasonings/lotions/rare internal illnesses etc. Do ur self a favor & review anything new in your life within 2wks of this starting & review with dr.

Hives: Sounds like the itching and bumps could be related to hives also called urticaria. Hives can be caused by many things- illness, food, medication, insect sting, latex, other new exposure. Take oral antihistamine and if still not getting better see primary care doc or allergist.

My husband and I have severe itching for months and no one can tell us what it is or what's causing this. I have seen an allergy specialist / nothing?

My husband and I have severe itching for months and no one can tell us what it is or what's causing this. I have seen an allergy specialist / nothing?

Have it checked: Have it checked. Severe itching specially when shared by individuals in the same household can possibly be due to mites or other infestations. In particular, scabies. I would recommend that everyone affected go see a dermatologist. A proper history and clinical exam will help with the diagnosis and lead to the best treatment. Hope this helps.

How do I relieve severe itching?

Itch relief: Is this isolated itching with no rash, no skin yellowing, no nausea, no loss of appetite, no difficulty breathing? If so, you can take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to help with itching. Believe it or not, acupuncture can be great for itching. If you have other generalized symptoms or the itching does not resolve, please seek medical evaluation. Take care.
