    Iv never had a problem with my scalp before but since iv been pregnant like end of 2nd tri and still now iv had really bad itching on my scalp and it leads to parts of my scalp getting scabs and just basically being really itchy.. as horrible as it all sounds i just want to know if anyone else has this problem and what there doing about it .. Iv seen a dermatologist about my eczema like a month ago im due to go again thursday.. but thats all gone down loads since i got alot of stuff but nothing seems to be working for my head i cant even brush my hair pwithout ripping scabs out or it being painful :wacko: :(

    iv tried using t-gel but that just stings so i stopped with that .. then i got some stuff to put on from the hospital but it was a tiny bottle to be used ever now and again and its all gone now as its been a month and that didnt help :( its just really irrating now and im sick of it being proper itchy!

    yeah I had really itchy scalp around week 30, found it really odd because it was itchy even right after I got out of the shower and was combing it - so I switched my shampoo and conditioner to all natural ones, and it seems to really be helping.

    Hi hun, I have been seeing a Prof Hawk (dermatologist) to have cryotherapy and took the opportunity of asking him about my excessive dry skin. He gave me a suggested regime and and also checked my scalp and asked me about my hair. He recommended using Nizoral shampoo (which I have checked is safe in pregnancy and bf as it is not absorbed into the blood at all) to help the overall problem. To be honest I haven't used it as I don't have a problem with itchy scalp but saw your post and thought it may help you. I did google it to see how safe it was and it looks fine, but you may want to run it by your dermatologist at your appointment.

    Hope that helps and you get some relief soon. x
