I have mentioned this already somewhere on here. My whole scalp has come out in terribly itchy dry skin and red patches. Plus ears keep getting peeling stuff just inside them (not itchy). I switched from T-Gel to baby shampoo back to T-Gel again. My husband massaged my head for me a week ago with olive oil which was amazing - but a bit gross to wash out and took several washes and I smelt like a salad minus the balsamic so I was told! (cant smell anymore! ). Its back again with a vengeance anyhow.
I don't know if this is relevant but it arrived in week two off the injectable MTX and week 4 off Hydroxy - which makes me wonder if its actually autoimmune i.e psoriasis? I haven't had an itchy scalp for years since my bad old alopecia/ eczema days when I suffered terribly and used Betacap (betnovate) on it regularly to very good effect. This is different. Its far more itchy and not scabby but the odd flake and bleeding from some of the scratching I've tried not to do! It woke me last night ragingly itchy and hubby says its much worse now and all over my scalp. I've picked up some good sounding non drug remedies from others posts on the psoriasis foundation site but not sure if this is psoriasis at all or just eczema come back to haunt me?
As many of you know I've bothered GP with bad tum and drug problems and flares lately. Presenting again with an itchy scalp feels a bit desperate therefore - but it is driving me absolutely nuts! What should I do?
Ps my hairdresser was the one who suggested it looked like psoriasis to her. I haven't been diagnosed with PsA just RA but nothing would surprise me anymore!
