Itching Scalp

by Louise Ventura
(Bristol, england)

I have finally caught a tiny brown worm from my itching scalp!

I've caught what looks like a light brown coloured worm tho may be a tiny insect not necessarily a worm. I don't have access to a magnifying glass.....

I would like to know if there is anything you can suggest as to how I can get rid of the itching scalp before I see a GP.

I've had this itching scalp that has got worse and worse for several weeks - about 5. I thought it was just my scolarisis -- I've not been able to get something from the chemist because I cant afford the m and as I'm new to this area I not long registered with a GP surgery, just waiting for an appointment!

The itching has kept me awake at night and my usual shampoo treatment for "scolarisis" is not working. There doesn't even seem to be anything online about this. Everything I read refers either to head lice, fleas, or is about ringworms or other worms on the body but not on the head/scalp.

This is definitely a tiny - half a finger nail - thin light brown worm. It was still alive. As it's been so long I'm very worried.

Hi Louise,

Having an itchy scalp can be a real annoyance, but when it gets to the point that it is keeping you awake at night, you definitely need to be concerned.

I hope you will be able to get some good advice from the GP and that he is skilled in that
area. You mentioned that you already have a known skin condition. Do you mean psoriasis? Scoliosis? I'm not familiar with the condition you mentioned.

There are two different home remedies I would try myself for external treatment if I were in your shoes. First, I would coat my entire head with olive oil before I go to bed and wrap it with a towel or something. Leave it on all night (at least 8 hours) and then wash it out in the morning.

The olive oil should serve to smother any parasites that are external on your head.

Afterward, I would use raw, organic apple cider vinegar as a rinse on my hair and scalp. This would be beneficial to soothe your skin.

Internally, I would take some cleansing supplements and building supplements. You may find that detoxifying your body and boosting your immune system may get rid of, not only the itching scalp, but also the other condition you mentioned.

When you are able to afford it, try cleansing with Herbal Fiberblend and Bear Paw Garlic.

Build your body's immune system with whole food supplement powders like the Garden Trio. They provide you with rich nutrition that strengthens your body and cleanses your liver, etc.

Also, look for probiotics locally. Things like acidophilus capsules. This helps to improve the good friendly bacteria in your body and enable your body to fight off parasites.

I hope these tips help you get relief from the itching scalp and that you feel better soon.

To your good health!
