What is a home remedy for itchy scalp?
Ok so your scalp is either too dry or too oily. Make SURE you do not get the two confused. Check between hair shafts for small, greasy, white flakes. If so you have too oily skin. I suggest not conditioning your scalp for a few days, and/or using dandruff shampoo. Cheap drugstore brand is effective. If your scalp is maybe a little bit red or you notice more flakey white particles in your hair, you have a dry scalp. I would massage olive oil into your scalp, leave for ten minutes, then rinse. Best luck!!!

Answer It could be dry scalp try some dry scalp and dandruff shampoo they sale it at Wal-mart Answer Perhaps your scalp is dry. If the weather is col…d, it could cause irritation. Even season changes can cause irritation.
You can use natural oils, or shampoos like the ones that have tea oils, I heard that tree tea oils in shampoos work fine.
The traditional housewife remedy is raw eggs and vinegar. You add them together then massage the mixture onto your scalp then wait for 10 minutes then rinse out .

I have that problem, so I use this shampoo called T-GEL. It relieves the itchiness and oil in your hair, but don't be surprised when it really stinks! After I use it I always …put on some good-smelling stuff to make it smell better hee hee :-)
Redness and itchiness are side effects of Minoxidil. See link ...the side effects of minoxidil can include scalp irritation, itchiness and dryness.
Had a dog with dry skin issues also. Vet suggested oatmeal baths. Worked very well for her. Can find dog shampoos with oatmeal in it already.
You could have lice. Have someone look at your scalp to see - they should be visible. If that's the case, there are quite a few OTC rememdies. Otherwise, you just may be using… a shampoo that's irritating your scalp or drying it out. Try switching to something milder.
It's possible, if that has been the affected area of the bite.
Talc, or talc powder usually dries the feet out and stops the itching
Interestingly enough, eating honey that is harvested in your area is a natural allergy medicine. It has to do with the bees pollinating the local flowers which contribut…e to your allergy. It's something to think about.
It could be just dandruff or even maybe scalp fungus. Also I'm not positive but you can read up on Candida overgrowth. The itchy crawling scalp/skin and itchy ears are a sympt…om of Candidaisis.
I have had a madly itchy scalp for the last 6 weeks and I am up to week 12 week of my pregnancy. I feel like pulling my hair out... I suggest get a pregnancy test quic…k!
It depends on the cause of the itch. The first line of defense would be washing the feet regularly. Then If it is due to a fungal infection such as athletes foot a treatment s…uch as Lamisil should help

I used to have the same problem. I don't know about you but I would even scratch to the point of even bleeding. I suffered from dry scalp for years among other dry skin p…roblems. First I tried the dermatologist, who gave me Hydrocortisone or Steroid creams and shampoos, at first they seemed like they were helping but then it came back worse, almost with a vengeance. Almost all doctors and dermatologists recommend them. I later found out that they are hash chemicals with side effects (thin skin to the point of bleeding, they burn the skin, weaken the immune system and more). So learn from my mistakes and STAY AWAY. A lot of people don't realize that most scalp problems are caused by the shampoos we use. Most shampoos we use today are nothing more than glorified detergents. It's horrible, it strips the hair and the scalp of the PH balance and can cause damage. It strips the hair and scalp of everything good and everything bad. Even people who have been using the same shampoo and suddenly get dry scalp, it's because there's not always an immediate effect, it can have an accumulative effect I tried Tar shampoos(with real tar) that was really bad. All kinds of over-the-counter (Head and Shoulders)products, did nothing, maybe made it worse, they also had bad/damaging chemicals. I also tried over the counter creams I used (Eurcein to name one of many) had mineral oil in it which is the by-product of making gasoline from petroleum. It's Cheap and HORRIBLE for the skin. And the sad thing is Doctors recommend it. Finally after years of suffering I found a product that works for me. I was so leery on trying new products(I had tried so many others). I asked them what made their products so special. They explained to me that the skin responds to natural in a simple example (If you eat healthy foods you body will respond well if you don't it won't). They told me how the skin has 7 layers (3 main ones) and that you need something that's Trans-dermal (travels though the seven layers) and will work it's way up to unpack dry dead and damaged cells and restore balance. They went on to explain that the skin needs natural products and only that but the right formulation, and to add no dyes,colorants,fragrances. They told me how they have a 95% success rate and people see significant results in 3-5 days(I literally did not believe them). Still hesitant I decided to finally give their products a try. I was amazed, shocked and relieved all at the same time. In 7 days my dry scalp was 80% healed, in 2 weeks or less you could not tell I even had problematic skin. I used to itch to the point of sometimes breaking skin, the itching stopped in less than 2 days. I suffered for years with no relief, now that I have my skin repaired I am telling everyone. I've told hundreds who have suffered, and tried their products and they truly have a 95% success rate. The Website is Please Vist my BIO Page on The Left The dermatologist will say their is no cure, because what they give you will not work. Hope this helps
Try Apple Cider Vinegar it also works great on bug bites and itchy skin. It balances the body's PH
Itchy scalp is usually caused by a dry scalp which in turn causes dandruff. Dandruff shampoos are a great way to solve the problem. A person could also use a moisturizing sc…alp treatment to combat an itchy scalp.
