Why is my head so itchy?

When the scalp is red and flaky from dandruff, we often call it seborrheic dermatitis, but the cause is the same. Allergic contact dermatitis is also a common cause of itchy scalp. Sometimes, people develop an allergy to their hair color or to their shampoo, conditioner or hair products.

What causes pimples on your head?

What causes a pimple to form on your scalp? Pimples occur when pores, or hair follicles, get clogged. This can occur when dead skin cells, naturally occurring oil that keeps the skin moisturized (sebum), and bacteria enter the pores. The cells cannot exit the pore, which results in acne in a variety of forms.
