20. About scalp itchiness

There are many AD patients who complain about scalp itchiness. Although the itch can subdue if you use lotion with steroids in it, there are many people who don’t want to use steroids and are wondering what they should do. Although I explain that using lotions with steroids has little to no harmful effects, there are patients who stay adamant in their refusal.

In these cases, after washing your hair with soap, use conditioner with 1 to 2% boric acid (there aren’t any conditioners with boric acid already in them, but boric acid can be easily purchased at a drug store, so ask your pharmacist how much boric acid you can put in). However, you should do this when you clearly have rashes on your scalp, and this is useful to prevent the further outbreak of these rashes,, and not to stop the itch. There are times when shampoos with eucalyptus extract work.

There are times when I allow patients to take antibiotics for two weeks. There seems to be a strong dislike towards steroids, that people would rather take antibiotics than use lotion with steroids on their scalp. This is can be quite effective. However, as I have mentioned in the section about acne, it is highly unfavorable to use antibiotics over a long period.
