Itchy Head
Does anybody who has lost their hair have any recommendations for the itching? My Dad started losing his hair about 3 weeks ago (it only took about a week for it to all be gone) and it has been itching like crazy. He is always scratching at it. He says his scalp itches and feels a little like pins and needles.

Re: Itchy Head
I made sure I put a lot of lotion and moisturizer when my hair fell off. That helped. And I did not wear a hat (or wig or anything else) on my head while indoors.

A friend of mine recommended Scalpicin. I never tried it though.

Hope that helps your Dad.
