For itching you can use any good steroid lotion over the scalp.
Along with this a good shampoo and a conditioner would be good.

Hi! Manu,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

There are various reason for hair loss in females,like iron deficiency,hormonal,stress,wrong use of shampoo or conditioner, change of place ,thyroid problem,any chronic illness,zinc or copper deficiency ,use of straighteners etc..You should also rule out a common hormonal condition called POLY CYSTIC OVARY DISEASE.
So one needs a complete work up and then decide for treatment .
The basic treatment includes use of minoxidil solution,biotin,zinc ,copper, iron supplements,amino acids etc.

Healthy life style ,proper intake of water,good sleep in night also helps a lot.
Apart from this we in Apollo hospital have lasers too to stop hair loss ,It is a US FDA approved laser .We also do MESOTHERAPY ,which are nothing but small injection of essential elements given directly over scalp .A combination of above all works best.

Hope this answers your query.

Wish you good health,

Dr.Bharat chawda
