Hi!Nithya,
Welcome To HealthacareMagic forum,

Nithya if your scalp does not show any scaling or excess peeling form a particular site ,then you won't be having any fungal infection.
There are two other conditions which you might be having .Probably just a excessive dandruff which is causing itching.And secondly ,if itching is very sever ,then you should rule out HEAD LICE .
For dandruff you can use a kecoconazole 2% shampoo twice a week along with topical steroid lotion .
For head lice ,you should use 1% permithrine solution as a shampoo for scalp.
Your dermatologist would help you find a perfect solution for you.

Hope this answers your query ,if you have any further question ,you can write back to us.

regards,
Dr.chawda

Thought I might have contacted lice at a child s party a few days ago but although I don t see anything in my hair, I am itchy all over and have white flecks that can be seen on my couch and occasionally in my hair. I think it might be dandruff but want to be sure. Also, my eyes are itchy and I find some particles in the corner of my eye. Is it just coincidence that I am experiencing these symptoms shortly after the party? Is it all in my head?

My dermatologist has told me my itchy scalp is from the scalp re=growing a new layer every night. I only itch at night after I have washed my hair. I quit hair dye for 6 months and use the best shampoos and rinse in borax, vinegar and use all of the ointments and cream the dr, has prescribed but it seems to be getting worse. I m worried about heart/cancer . My father died at my age fro a heart attack at 61. I think washing my hair stimulates the growth. It is like poison ivy and feels like a wax build up on my head. I even eliminate alcohol and sugar. What kind of tests should I ask my regular doc. to do? This has been going on for years.
