2 yrs ago i noticed my hair was "parting" -kinda like a cowlick- ALL over my head making it look like i had bald spots. It was hard to comb thru. Suddenly my perfect eyelashes went haywire "parting" and pointing in all directions and growing on the rim and below my 'real' eyelashes. 3 rows! Like sharks teeth?? Lol. So for 2 yrs ive been painstakingly trying to comb thru my hair for up to 10 hrs/day b4 i break down and cry with frustration. I also seem to have small grooves/ indentations in my skull that the hair REALLY sticks in. I hv to use a metal lice comb to painfully TRY to scrape my hair out of the grooves and off my scalp. The grooves are about 3mm apart, evenly spaced, and run horizontal,vertical, and diagonal. The only thing ive found to combat the 'stickiness' is Epsom salt dissolved in a little water and massaged into scalp but it leaves my hair so dry with residue on it so its even harder to comb thru. When i vigorously comb it, i would get red bumps all over my face, neck, chest, arms and my ears turn bright red and SEVERELY BURN. As i looked closer i noticed TINY white ?crystals? were coming off my scalp during this process and going into hair follicles to create the red bumps and if i covered up or exfoliated right afterward i rarely developed the bumps. My hair is also clumping or tufting making the surrounding areas look sparse. I have mult hairs coming out of one follicle and a clear cylindrical covering (almost like plastic!) covering and binding the tufts closest to scalp. Well thats some of it anyways. My point being i am SICK of spending 5-10 hrs trying to painfully comb my hair everyday. My health insurance sucks and drs never seem to know or care what it is or how to treat it. Any suggestions? And NO, shaving my head does NOT help cuz the " glue" must be part of the scalp specifically. Thx for reading this.
