what does it mean when people say scalp thickens and hair start thinning
they said the thickness of scalp is 2.5mm around... and if u keep hitting your head with comb, it will become thicker and hair won't be able to grow
does it mean my head will look higher?
In conditions like seborehiec dermatitis, there is thicking of the scalp, which is due to collection of greasy stuff and fungal growth
No, it does not mean the head will look high
but when the person said scalp is 2.5mm and if it becomes thicker... - doesn't mean my head will not look high right?
whether i loser my hair or whether my scalp becomes weird
or whether it goes bald it won't look higher right?
No, it does not mean that way
so it won't change my height even 1mm?
if the scalp, is diseased, then the growth and quality of hair is affected , hence it can become thin and appear lustre less
thicker scalp or baldness or whatever doesn't mean my head will look higher and change my height right?
no, the height does not change, in such issues ,
not even 1mm, right? I don't have to worry right?
no, u dont need to worry
not even 1mm, right?
yes, that is right , the height is not affected nor changed
so when they said "thicker and hair starts to lose elasticity and stops growing" means what you just explained above right?
yes, that is right
If I press my head hard it goes in a bit... a bit soft
is that normal?
yes, the scalp is composed of soft tissues and a layer of fat, which gives cushioning effect
so when you compress it, it will go inside
so my head is normal, nothing inside
yes, that is normal , and you dont need to worry about tumors, etc
thank you so much doctor
I know the questions were strange
but I was so curious it almost interfered me with other things
Unless, you see a elevated lump, on the scalp, which differs from the natural outline , you do not need to worry about tumors
you are welcome
elevated lump, you can easily tell right?
yes, definitely, a elevated lump, should be easily seen separate from the surrounding scalp
what if I have one right now?
sorry maybe I worry too much unnecessarily all the time
Do u feel that you have a separate bump or lump, on your head ?
well, if I touch the very middle part of the top of my head it feels its higher than left and right side
but that's normal right? cuz it's the very middle part?
yes, that is normal
thats not a lump
ah i see
are lumps soft? or hard?
yes, they are soft in most cases
but when you press your head hard and when it goes in a bit, that's normal right?
only bony outgrowths are hard
bony... haha I guess not
yes, that is absolutely normal
so if my hair is too long - almost to my hips now..
and if I can't manage it too well, maybe better to cut it a little?
to avoid hair loss?
unless the hair at the end is split or appear unnatural, there is no need to cut them, unless, you want to reduce the size
any good shampoo for dandruff?
avoiding too much of sun exposure, also should be taken care off
oh sun exposure
yeah.. i forgot that one
anything recommended by dermatologists?
cuz I actually have some dandruff
You can use Shampoos containing Ketaconazole, FOR DANDRUFF
thank you for all your information doctor
