I am 25 years old have in the past 6 months been tested and treated for low thyroid. My dry itchy scalp is very localized in the area above and around my ears. I imagined an itchy scalp because of low thyroid to be an all over itch. Could this dry skin and itch be because of something other than my thyroid? Should I be using dandruff shampoo?
If you don't get any answers here, you might go to the doctor forum and ask Dr. Lupo at http://www.medhelp.org/forums/show/120 or
at left of page almost top, under "Thyroid Disorders" in red click on "thyroid" it will take you to the forum.
