Rash On My Scalp

by Mary
(Tulsa, ok)

I was out in the country Saturday, and on Sunday I saw kind of like a rash on my scalp. It felt like a burn and it felt hot and it was very red.

I did see ticks and I got like 3 off me; no bites though.

I am very concerned about this rash. It feels like pressure on that spot. Can you tell me what could have caused it?

Hi Mary,

Were you wearing a hat when you were out and about in the country on Saturday? Was it a sunny day? Is the rash just redness on the scalp, or are you seeing bumps or sores?

You didn't mention any itching or anything, and I'm wondering if perhaps what you have is actually a sunburn on your head.

We often don't think about getting a sunburned scalp, but it has happened to me on more than one occasion! I'm terribly forgetful about taking a hat when I'm going to be out all day.

The red, burning sensation, and pressure all sounds similar to a sunburn. If that's the case, it will fade as the days pass.

You can apply some organic apple cider vinegar to your scalp and it will help reduce the pain and promote healing.

Let me know if this does the trick or if you find the rash on your scalp is something more.

To your good health!
