caused by conditions affecting the blood vessels, nerves, and tissues below or surrounding the scalp.
Scalp tenderness is a common problem, though symptoms vary from allergies, psoriasis, eczema to hair loss.
Other causes are poor diet, chemotherapy and radiation therapies, acne, cysts, allergic reactions, hyperthyroidism or other therapies in menopause, infections of skin cells or hair follicle shafts, viral diseases causing skin sores.
As promoter of natural skin care products, Herbally Radiant has been highlighting the importance of staying away from harsh chemicals in most of the fancy sounding hair care or skin care products. Most dyes and shampoos are petroleum-based- inexpensive ingredients for the manufacturers, but risky for the users.
First aid ointments, creams, antiseptics, and dressing materials that might help in basic cases, but long-lasting scalp tenderness should be reported to a doctor.
