CONDITIONS THAT AFFECT THE SCALP
White flakes on the shirt are never good news; unless it’s snowing. Some of the scalp conditions can mess up your entire routine. Let’s learn the causes and conditions that ruin your hair and damage the scalp.
It is recognized with pink plaques with the silvery scale on the scalp. It is thought of as an autoimmune state, where the cells manifest as a pink rash with a characteristic silvery scale. Psoriasis affects any part of the body from head to toe and even nails. It is easy to treat on the body but challenging when it affects the scalp.
For treatment, start with steroids, but only if professionals have prescribed you. If the situation is severe, you may be injected with shots called biologics that suppress what’s causing it to flare up. Not shampooing the hair each day can also lower the amount of skin rashes, you can even try therapeutic oil cream, it does wonder.
The folliculitis looks like little scattered bumps. These are inflammations of the hair follicle that are caused by bacteria. Or irritation after shaving. The folliculitis appears as a little pus scattered everywhere on the scalp that looks similar to acne. They can also feel sore at times.
An expert suspecting folliculitis might perform a culture to look for bacteria. Antibiotic is the best option if a microbe causes your scalp distress.
You can identify a cyst as fluid-filled sacs. Cysts can occur on any organ, as well as your skin. The good news here is how easy they are to identify on the scalp. A cyst is as small as a grape that you can feel while brushing or combing your hair.
The cysts are mostly genetic and are no cause of concern, with that being said, there are cases when they get irritated or infected that cause pain and drainage.
Ringworm, also known as tinea capitis, can be identified as bald spots and scaly rash. It’s a fungal infection that happens mostly to kids and occasionally adults as well. There are not a lot of ways of contacting the fungus. It could be animal to human, human to human, and object to human.
The resulting rash is normally quite painful as well as scaly and causes enlarged lymph nodes sometimes. It also causes broken hair, bald spots, and black dots.
An antifungal pill does the job usually, but remember that treating or discarding infected sources helps prevent any re-infection.
You have vast options and choices to go through and get the look that you wish to achieve. Remember that no matter what age group you are in, you can still play around with your appearance and look glamourous.
