Excessive Itching On Scalp. Help!

02 February 2013 - 08:06 AM


I am on day 13 of Roaccutane. The past few days my scalp has been itchy. But early this morning, it was unbearable. Couldn't get back to sleep as it was constant itching/burning pain. Ended up jumping in the shower (scalp feels incredibly sensitive as the force of the water hurt my scalp). It helped the itching. But (5 hours later), it's getting itchy again.

I am from the UK, and have just bought standard Head & Shoulders dry scalp shampoo. Not sure whether it will work (trial and error I guess). Is there anything else I can do? Any products that might help?
Any advice much appreciated, as was at the end of my tether this morning!
