Since I was a kid, I noticed what appears to be tiny "eggs" on my scalp, but never was diagnosed with lice. I'm now 27, and the problem is still there, especially when I haven't washed my hair for a few days. Basically, I run my fingernails over my scalp and catch these little egg-like things. It's not itchy at all, and no red bumps or flaking.
Side note: I have extremely oily skin w/ adult facial acne, so not sure if this is related to that. These "eggs" are similar in appearance to what comes out of my blackheads when I extract them (comedones?)
Also, I've been having female hair loss for quite a few years. In the shower I have to clean out the drain every time, and my shower comb pulls out a lot of hairs. It's not in clumps, but my hair is very fine w/thinning at the crown.
any advice on how to remedy this is much appreciated.
