itchy hands and scalp with small red bumps

I am a male age 63. My itching started last winter. I'm now going crazy with this itching! I went to a dermatologist who said I have eczema and some psoriasis. I am using a prescription ointment but it works temporarily. Usually I feel the itching first, then small red bumps appear. No pain, just itching on my fingers and scalp...HELP!! I can't sleep!

Hello,

If the itching has been present for one year, then eczema and hives due to an allergic reaction are important to be ruled out.  I suggest you to get a biopsy skin done and get blood tests like RAST done to rule out any allergies.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.

Unrefined organic cold pressed virgin coconut oil both eaten and used topically will cure it... read up on sites like earthclinic etc ... I got Dr Bronner's brand on Amazon for about $10. You can also get it at some grocers and all health food stores but it must be cold pressed and not from the hulls etc ... there is a major difference

Good luck!
