I have been having scalp pain for several years now. It comes and goes. I have been to many dermatologists and they prescribe creams, shampoos, tell me to take Benadryl. Nothing helps. They have injected steroids and they were no help.
I went to the ER because the scalp pain was so bad. They said ringworm, but no, it's not ringworm. It's not psoriasis. They did a biopsy and that seemed to make it feel better only for a short while then bam! It's back. All I do is scratch my freaking head. It's a round spot, the hair is breaking off and it's itchy and it hurts like hell. It's like sharp claws are stabbing my scalp. I am so tired of my head bothering me like this.
I tried so many things: Neosporin, Benadryl cream, baby oil, baby powder, so on and so on. Nothing helps. The biopsy says it's just an itchy spot. Whatever. I am thankful it's not a tumor or anything, but this is horrible to live with. I am trying fenugreek now. I'm also going to try the Essiac tea. I am to see a Neurologist, but can't get in for a month. Maybe I can make an appointment with pain management, I don't know what to do or how to get relief.
People think, oh it can't be that bad. Well it is. It is real bad. The pain is unreal. This time I have had this for eight months and it's not going away. It's only getting worse. It kind of resembles a pilar cyst. You can't see a cyst; I think its under the skin.
Nobody will go in and even to try to remove anything. I want it out if that's what it is. I think it stinks so bad we have all these doctors, but nobody will even try to help. This is certainly not normal. The doctors say it's just an itchy spot but there is no way I believe that. There is pain, pain, pain!
