Ever had extreme itching?
« on: June 11, 2014, 09:57:18 PM »
So it doesn't help that my daughter and I both had lice not long ago.  Practically her whole classroom had it - which I volunteer in.  As soon as I found it, I got us both professionally treated and paid over $300 to do so!

But since then I can't stop itching my scalp.  I've been checked several times after my treatment and have been told they are all gone, yet I continue to itch.

I'm wondering if the itching is from all of the anxiety?  I was doing ok off my anxiety meds until this hit and now I feel like I have PTSD with it.  Haven't been sleeping at night, can't function at work, and then this damn itching.  I went to the doctor and they gave me a cream to put on my scalp because I've itched it raw.  Plus a medicine to take at night that's suppose to help with anxiety and itching.  We'll see.

And I don't know why I can't let go of the lice issue?  I guess it's a control thing.  I had no control over what happened and I don't ever want it to happen again.  So damn frustrating.

I always had a sensitive skin, but when I am under the stress my skin does become much more itchy usually on my back or chest.

Once I clawed my scalp raw because of eczema (who knew it could show up on your scalp?) and the doctor suggested dandruff shampoo.  It did help.

Could be that the treatment they used on you has dried your scalp a bit and is causing the itch.  Try a nice conditioner on your hair the next time you shampoo and see if that provides some releif
