I have severe itching around my ears, the back of my neck and my scalp? This has been going on for about 8 weeks. My hairdresser used a color on my hair with peroxide which he had never used before. I have had a relaxer in my hair for over 30 years. Could this be an interaction of chemicals and if so what can I do to releive the itching. I have tried cortisone-10 but the itching continues. I am scratching myself sore. How long will this go on? Help!!! I went to a dermotologist but he was no help and said these things happen. He also advised my not to use the cortisone more than two weeks because it would make my skin too thin. Any advice will be appreciated. I also started taking Zelnorm around the same time but nothing in the information I received noted that as a side effect.
I don't think it's a reaction to chemicals, but even if it was that, it isn't anymore, since you aren't using the chemicals now. What you need to do is stop scratching. The best thing for that is a cortisone-containing scalp lotion your dermatologist can prescribe for you. It is not true that you can thin your skin out from that in a week. This needs to be treated even if "these things happen." Please find a dermatologist who will prescribe what you need. Meantime, an over-the-counter itch lotion like Benadryl may help keep you from scratching.

I am suffering from itchy scalp and flakes like snow,very embarrassing.
What do you suggest I do. I use Head and Shoulders to wash my hair. I have it coloured every twelve weeks, and every 3 months a perm. this has been getting worse in the last three weeks.
Could I be alergic (allergic) to my pillows? they are (not) new ones.
Any help or advise appreciated
