Itchy scalp - causes and treatment
Scalp itching is one of the most common itching diseases. Everyone knows this unpleasant feeling when there is itching at the roots of the scalp and the cause cannot be determined immediately. Itchy scalp can be an indication of skin fungus, allergies, hormonal changes, lice, mites or skin diseases like psoriasis.
Itchy scalp can also cause psychosomatic complaints, mental or physical stress. Itchy scalp can be relieved by using proper shampoos or conditioners.
The habit of leaving marks on the scalp when scratching can be a sign of neurodermatitis or other symptoms, such as mite infestation or allergies.
Also influenced by age and lifestyle, some people may suffer from itchy scalp particularly often, as in some people the scalp dries out with age.

Tips for healthy scalp
The healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. New cells are constantly formed there in the deeper layers. Good blood circulation ensures optimal oxygen supply to the cells and enables the removal of harmful substances from the cells.
Sometimes dandruff itching may be accompanied by redness and inflammation and may spread to the earlobes, neck and forehead. In this case, the dandruff itch is usually due to an allergy - for example, an allergic reaction to a hair care product or sunscreen that has been exposed to UVA rays.
The good news is that scalp itch can be easily avoided with a little caution. For example, especially if itchy scalp is a regular occurrence in the winter, it is important not to use hot water to wash your hair because it destroys the scalp's natural protection. If you consciously avoid these things, the itching should quickly disappear on its own.
