Itchy rashes all over face with heavy hair fall. Treatment?

HI, am 27 old, recently i have got very bad and sometimes itchy kind of rash all over face and spreading down to neck . I dont use any cream or any other cosmetics till now in my whole life, i am very much worried why this has come to me. I was having very clear and baby soft skin, now i have lost glow and charm on my face. Recently i have changed cooking oil from sunflower to vegetable oil, would that cause rash and what i remember is I had used some unknown brand make-up powder to my face and neck for the 1st time over a month ago since after few days i am suffering from this problem, and very itchy scalp with heavy hairfall. Please help me to find some solution. Thank you .

Thanks for query,
Fall of hairs is due to Dandruff.
Take treatment for dandruff like apply selen shampoo.
If anemia is there go for cap. Iron.
Do not keep your hairs wet for long time.
Ok and bye.

Hi....Tejas.,welcome to HCM..,

I gone through Ur problem..,

1)Hair fall is due to ....only a) nutrional disturbances b) genetic factor c) Overuse of medicines d)Chronic infections e) Debilitated conditions f) cancer g) Raditherapy for cancer....but commonest is Nutrional..,hence there is no relation between hairfall and dandruff (due to sweating of scalp,oil, and dust from environment....I think Ur case is due to change in the nutrition i.e diet pattern..,

2) In ur complaint.... burning and itching is due to scalp dermatitis.., change of climate (high humidity will exaggerated the sweating of scalp ) and change of water content are precipitated factors

3) Regarding treatment.... use Ketaconazole shampoo daily keep on head for 20 mts and thorough rinsing and headbath

4) orally take Boitin 10mg tablets for 2 months

5) Apply Minoxidil lotion 2% ... on scalp 2 hrs after headbath....

.............will give good result.( 90%) o.k. bye goodluck.....
