Change your shampoo, and keep changing it untill you find one that clears it up, use each one for a minimum of 4 weeks before trying another, the first one to try would be an anti dandruff shampoo like selsun blue 5... The more you pay for the shampoo, the more likely it is to by hypo allergenic.

Good Luck

I've been all over the web and found people that have head scabs for all their life and:1.  enjoy picking them like an addict/cutter  2. Some people collect the scabs and enjoy looking at them  3. Yes, some people even eat their scabs...  It's a serious thing for a lot of guys and girls of all ages, though most people have had it all their life or developed it at a young age.  Seems like there is no definite cure anywhere - but one lady swears by doing a holistic detoxification, and fasting for 20 days, stated she had been scab-free for several years now, by repeating this regularly and taking Milk Thistle to keep her liver cleansed.  That was the only 'cure' I found on the web, after looking and researching it for literally weeks.  It actually makes sense (I've been a surgical first assistant for over 15 years...) that toxins would manifest themselves in this way. Many of the people who have this also seemed to report bad finger or toenails as well, a symptom of toxins in the body.  I know my (I kept you waiting for a bit before saying that I, too am a 'scalper' - a term I just now made up and hopefully that wasn't my freakin' legacy in life but it does sound better than 'head case', that's a picture of one of my recent ones that I took with a digital microscope normally used for botany, I freaked the first time I saw it, too) itching gets worse when I take prescription narcotics for my chronic pain, but then it just feels good to scratch everywhere on my body so I always remember to take 1 Benadryl if I'm going to be on some Vicodin, Lortab or other prescribed opiate medication so I don't get the 'itchy & scratchy' show action...  How?  It stops the histamine release caused by the narcotics. Anyways, I'm not too serious a case (looks way worse than it is), and I'm not good at fasting and detox programs so, I'll just keep my scabs (no, not in a jar, either) lol-elixircel

I just recently started to notice when I get in the shower, brush my hair or even run my fingers through my hair a mass amount of hair comes out! Also I scratched my head an noticed that I am getting scabs! I am losing the hair around the back of my head and the hair behind my ears! Is this normal? And what can I do?
