Hi i think feeling of burning sensation all over the body and hair burnt out can be due biotin deficiency it can be also due to proactive.
As u already stopped proactive.take biotin 10 mg for 2 weeks and see the result.add b12 .iron and folic acid supplementation.and use a antihistamine to decrease itching
