What could cause my scalp to feel like its burning. Shingles has been ruled out. ? The only thing that seems to help is ice packs.

Many possibilities

Head-scalp
There are a number of possibilities that could explain that symptom including chemical damage to the skin from hair products to nerve damage from a variety of causes. "Burning" quality pain is typical for neuropathic or nerve damage pain. I would suggest you get in to see a neurologist or a pain management specialist for a good evaluation.

I had shingles last year on my back on the right side. A few months later, my scalp had a numb feeling, and around my eyes, Could it be PHN?

Unlikely

Head-scalp
Location of your Shingles, makes it less likely that u can have numbness in your skull and around the eyes, caused by Post Herpetic Neuralgia. PHN, primarily causes burning pain and is more likely, if the Shingle lasted several weeks.

Pain in my ears for a week which clears temporarily if I stretch my neck or jaw. I just had shingles around the right eye and scalp. related?

TMJ/TMD

Herpes_zoster
1. Shingles are not related. 2. The most common musculoskeletal disorder causing orofacial pain is a temporomandibular disorder (TMD). In addition to TMD, musculoskeletal pain in the orofacial area can arise from the cervical spine and those rheumatic and collagen diseases that affect the masticatory system and cervical spine. Rec.: see an orofacial pain specialist for further investigation.

Dr. Roberto Feliz answered:

I was diagnosed with shingles about 4 days ago on my scalp. I have not washed my hair since. I was told to use baby shampo. I'm a little nervous?

Singles

Head-scalp
Single relates to having being exposed to varicella virus previously. Because you are still early before 7 days, you should be on an antiviral medication per your MD. Washing your hair is fine and should not affect the condition one way or the other. Go head wash your hair and keep area clean to prevent secondary bacterial infections. Any shampoo is fine.
