Need more info: The question "were your ears burning? " is a saying people use when someone they were just talking about shows up or calls.

Depends on cause.: How long has this been going on? Sometimes this is due to sensitivity to body and hair products. See if using hypoallergenic products and avoiding fragrances, including in soaps and detergents, too, for skin, clothes, and bedding, stops this. If not, then you need to be seen by a doc to get to the bottom of the problem.

The nerves in the...: head and face are intricately wired & densely packed. The brain can get confused about where a sensation is coming from. Pain, burning, throbbing and other unpleasant sensations that recur are signs that a sensory nerve may be irritated or inflamed. Just because it's confined to your head doesn't mean it's "all in your head". Please see a doctor!

What can I apply to my itchy, burning hairline, forehead, and behind my ears? My sweat irritates me.

See Derm: First you need to find out what may be causing it (contact dermatitis) although I suspect that one or more of your hair products may have something to do with it. If changing products does not help, see Dermatologist. In the meanwhile, apply topical hydrocortisone.

I was diagnosed with CRPS type 2 on my left leg, I'm now starting to feel my scalp burning and also my ears, could that be the Crps is spreading?

I was diagnosed with CRPS type 2 on my left leg, I'm now starting to feel my scalp burning and also my ears, could that be the Crps is spreading?

Contraversial: There are some pain specialists who feel uncontrolled CRPS can "centralize" and spread throughout the body. If there is spread, more commonly, would expect issue in opposite leg first. Would suggest you investigate co-morbidities, such as giant cell arteritis, small fiber neuropathy, polymyalgia rheumatica, nutritional deficiencies, especially B-12.
