If I have a shower I have no problems. If I have a bath , after 10 min , my head itches very strong. Why? Is it a symptom of dermatitis seborroic?

If I have a shower I have no problems. If I have a bath , after 10 min , my head itches very strong. Why? Is it a symptom of dermatitis seborroic?

?: I can't think of a mechanism for this since showering would involve your scalp but bathing likely not. There is a condition known as cholinergic urticaria in which intensely itchy red bumps would develop after a rise in core body temperature, but this does not fit your picture. It is also not suggestive of seborrhea. Suggest you see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Do I have lme disease? I got a tick bite on my upper thigh about half a year ago. It spread to other parts of my legs, itches a lot, but i don't have any of the other symptoms. I misspelld: the question is do I have Lyme diease?

The : The rash associated with lyme disease is called erythema migrans and it looks like a target or bulls-eye. It usually starts at the site of the tick bite 3-30 days after the bite (average 7 days) and then can spread to other parts of the body. The rash typically doesn't last more than a month and is rarely itchy. An itchy rash appearing 6 months after a tick bite would not be related to lyme disease. Other kinds of ticks can spread other organisms besides lyme such as "southern tick associated rash illness" or rocky mountain spotted fever, so if you think you have an abnormal rash related to a previous tick bite, contact your doctor. Below i've attached a website with tons of good information on lyme disease. Good luck! ...Read more
