I’ve been back and forth from doctors over year trying to diagnose my itchy scalp which is a constant thing and like torture. I find it hard to enjoy life with this problem and am desperate to find out what’s causing it.
After a dermatological cause being ruled out by 2 doctors and 2 trichologists I have been looking online for answers. After blood tests in October 2017 it revealed I had a very low b12 level and was put on injections monthly which have now changed to every 3 months.
After 2 months of injections my itch went away however after my 6th one the itch came back and blood tests showed my b12 was normal.
Has my late diagnosis of b12 deficiency (an absorption issue) causes nerve damage that is just isolated to my scalp? I’ve read about scalp neuritis online but not b12 as a cause.
I am desperate for answers and what medication will numb this itch so I can start living my life again.
