My doctor and I are trying to sort out the best thing to do - Due to breast cancer being high in my immediate family and my blood problem, HRT is out of the question. (believe me we've gone down every route)
I'm having sweats - night and day and have a wet scalp most of the time, these have got worse in the last 2 years.
I leave my hair to dry naturally as a hair drier sound starts off my ears playing up (MD)
I've been taking extra vitamins and minerals and supplements and changed my diet, to help, which they all do.
the huge flakes of dandruff on my scalp, sometimes ooze clear liquid, occasionally blood.
I wash my hair about twice a week. I'm disabled and need my partner or other help to do this and I can't cope with doing it more often as I'm drained of energy from coping with my MD, eye problems, sciatica and others. (the list is getting longer by the day. lol)
I've tried every anti dandruff shampoo out there (polytar shampoo helps a bit, but a locally made rosemary, tea tree and cypress shampoo is the best so far and it's all natural ingredients. I can't use anything with added perfume.)
I rinse my hair really well.
I realise that this is not getting to the root of the problem, but suggestions are welcome.
I'm on a healthier diet, which is also helping (don't mention the Valentine's day chocs though!!!!)
I drink plenty of water (for other health reasons) and have my regular body mineral and vitamin checks to make sure I'm not lacking in anything - so far I haven't been.
Oh, and I don't scratch my head, been told not to by hairdresser!
Has anyone had the same problem?
Oh, Also, I have never had dandruff in my life before the menopause.
