Itchy, painful, sores,and hair loss
by Deann Daniel
I always wore brads in my hair.but now I'm wearing wigs because of the severe hair loss. I've wore braids about 27 years. Unitl, I noticed thinning in the crown of my head. Lately, it flares up with tiny bumps or soreness and is very painful in the top of my head. I was using some cream for the pain around my house called mentax,cortisone.peroxide, alcohol shampoos and conditioners It would stop the pain and heal the scalp, but the hair still broke off.and the flare up in my scalp would come back when ever. It has left a trail of breakage from the crown to the front of my head and down the sides. I decided to seek help at the Hair club but that did not stop my hair loss and they could not believe it. I made an appointment to a white dermatologist and she said come back when the head was inflammed. I m now seeking out a black dermatologist.Some of the stories I'm reading sound like my hair problem. You descirbe it as neurodermatitis. How do i help this problem or rid the inflammation to my scalp for good.
