Hello, I am 51 year old women. I have fought itchy scalp now for several years. It is not any thing like dandruff etc. I was recently told by my family Dr. when in for a visit that my blood pressure bottom number has been high last 3 times I have been there. This has been over a couple years. Could the itchy scalp be a symptom from high blood pressure?

My husband is 51 years old and has high blood pressure which he takes medicine to control. His blood pressure has been high recently even with medication. It just registered 232 over 101. We recently lost our health insurance so I m having a hard time getting him to go see his doctor. What are the risks?
