Itchy, painful scalp and hair loss
I started having an itchy spot at the top of my head some 20 years ago. I didn't think much of it because it would come and go. At first I thought it was nerves because I found myself at times scratching in that spot whenever I'd get upset. Soon it became involuntary and seemed to itch even when I wasn't upset. It really started to concern me when I was about 29 years old and a hairdresser rubbed in a little bald spot and asked if this was my nerve center.
I went to a couple of dermatologists one white and one black. I include race because girlfriends told me that a white dermatologist really wouldn't be able to help me. I was told the itching and hair loss was due to follicular dermatitis and was prescribed antibiotics. I was also told that I would not lose my hair eventhough there was hair loss.
I'm 38 years old and about 5 years ago I was told that I had Brachs pseudopalade. (not sure of spelling) The hair loss evident. It has started to thin and break off.
Is there any treatment for my condition?
