Hair And Scalp

Hair And Scalp

I have found info about osteoporosis causing hair loss for some people.
My question is - does it cause you to have an itchy scalp - not dandruff. Just a very itch scalp that feels tight when you scratch.
Just checking to see if there is anyone else out there with this.
Thanks and let’s all have a great day!

Have you changed shampoo or conditioner or hair treatments of any kind?
It might be your shampoo, some of them are too drying; and as we get older, our skin does not put out as much oil as it use to, and that can cause dryness and itching also.

We should always check "every" medication any doctor gives us to see what the warnings and side effects are, and to see if there is a problem taking that new drug with something we already take.
