Dry itchy scalp? Skin Health Awareness!!

Hello beautiful peeps,

It has been a goodish week., it has been a good week let's show some genuine gratitude right! I am feeling very tired as I write this but have got some surprising news for you!

Getting straight to the name of this post. Do you suffer from a a dry itchy scalp that does  not seem to get better no matter what you try? All the hair foods and Sulfur8's in the world cannot even help, I mean they give you a day or two's relief but the condition does not get any better. And then you start noticing some thin flaking just to make matters worse but that is what comes with a dry itchy scalp.

I took my kid to the dermatologist during the week and got myself checked out. I was just curious about this scalp that does not get any better not matter what I try, to only find out that I have eczema :O. Yes I was shocked a bit, I did suspect that there could be a serious problem but not eczema the rest of my body is ok no sign at all, no dry patches, no flares nothing! This is what googles calls it

What is seborrheic dermatitis? Seborrheic dermatitis, also known as seborrhea, sebopsoriasis, seborrheic eczema, dandruff and pityriasis capitis, is a chronic, relapsing and usually mild dermatitis. In infants seborrheic dermatitis is called cradle cap. Seborrheic dermatitis is an inflammatory skin disorder affecting the scalp, face, and torso
I know that is a lot of tongue twisting words but yeah!

The reason I am telling you all this long story is that some of you could be facing the same problem and not thinking for a moment that you could seek some professional medical help. 
I am glad I did this, because now I know how to treat my scalp well and know that I may have to buy medicated shampoo and not just regular shampoo.

Now here's the fun part about all this condition, I have been requested to wash my scalp 3 times a week. Yes girl, 3 times! I am still trying to figure out how is this gonna work.
I know for sure that this is gonna dry out my hair. I am excited about the hydration part of it but not the drying from the shampoo. I will be keeping you posted about the condition of my scalp and if the medicated shampoo is working well. I will tell you all of these things in another post!

Please make others aware of this. Co-washing or washing with conditioner only will only make this worse. Your scalp needs to be thoroughly cleansed to avoid any infections. You can read on here about how to treat this condition.
And just let us know if you think you have this condition or anyone you know and how they are treating it.

Thank you very much for the support! Until next post , God bless...
