Scalp Eczema

What are the symptoms and causes of Scalp Eczema?

Scalp eczema is one of the common causes for other hair problems like dandruff or hair loss. So what exactly is it and how can you manage and treat scalp eczema?

Eczema is a medical condition that affects the skin causing is to become inflamed, irritable, cracked and rough. Blisters may occur in some cases.

Scalp eczema primarily develops on oily areas of the skin thus it could also extend into the back of the neck or on the forehead and even in the ears. Sometimes also referred to as seborrheic dermatitis, scalp eczema is when the condition happens on the scalp causing itchy, dry and flaking skin to form on the scalp. Other common symptoms also include irritable and scaly skin patches that swells with redness and has a burning sensation. Irritated patches on the scalp may also have ‘weeping’ lesions.

If the irritation becomes unbearable, further inflammation and damage could be done to the scalp through persistent scratching which may then result in hair loss.

So what are the possible causes?

The exact cause still isn’t clear and needs further clinical studies but it could be due in part to;

  • Genetics
  • Hormonal Changes
  • Stress and Depression
  • Other skin conditions like psoriasis or malassezia

Malassezia is a yeast-like fungus found naturally on most people’s skin, especially on sites of the skin rich in sebum. However when overgrowth occurs, it can infect and irritate the scalp causing inflammation.

It’s also important to note the possible triggers such as having used certain harsh chemicals in treatments.

What can you do about it?

Though there is no outright cure for scalp eczema. There are still steps and treatments that can help better manage scalp eczema and its undesired symptoms depending on the condition and triggers.

Identifying the Trigger or Cause

Working with your doctor or trichologist first through a scalp analysis can help identify the condition. If you have identified the triggers, you could then make changes in lifestyle habits to avoid any suspected irritants or allergens like the use of certain harsh chemicals.

Be Gentle in the Shower

Go gentle when washing your hair and scalp and try to minimize agitating the itch and irritation. Products with alcohol content may also make the itching worse when it strips the scalp of the protective oils causing it to dry out.

Try to Minimize the Scratching

As unbearable as it may be, try to minimize aggravating the condition by scratching excessively as this may cause damage to your scalp or cause a secondary infection.

There are creams and shampoos that can soothe and control the inflammation but it’s best to seek professional advice first before experimenting as some of these might come with unintended side effects.

We also offer specialized Scalp Eczema Treatment that uses organic and natural products that is designed to soothe and alleviate the condition and symptoms.

Don’t lose hope just yet. Not all hair loss can be permanent and can be treated especially when spotted early. Proper diagnosis and early detection is key for treating hair problems. The best way is to give your hair and scalp a checkup with a detailed analysis that analyzes your hair’s thickness and follicular growth, identifies the possible causes and appropriate treatments.
