Scalp Eczema Shampoo
Maintaining the scalp and hair hygiene should be the first step in curing eczema of the scalp, so,as part of the therapy, it is recommended washing the hair with antidandruff shampoos at least once in every two days, but as a prevention as well.
Sunlight is considered as a good scalp inflammation reliever, but of course too much exposal to strong sunlight does more harm than good. It is proved that regular sun exposal slows down the growth of fungus Malassezia yeast, which is, in most of the cases, considered as the main cause for scalp eczema.
Dermatologists also suggest keeping your hair cut short while having scalp eczema due to easier hygiene maintenance.
Even on first signs of flaky scalp antidandruff shampoo should be put in use. Hair products with antidandruff and anti-inflammatory ingredients are considered as the most powerful cure against this condition. When the seborrhoeic eczema has been diagnosed, the antifungal agents and topical steroids should be added to treatment. Use of topical steroids should be done under doctor surveillance. If the patient does not respond to certain steroid, stronger one should be used, but for two weeks maximum.
Special lotions that contain zinc, sulfur and salicylic acid are used for deep cleaning of the scalp. A couple of deep wash scalp cleanings per month certainly are recommended, because removing harmful fungus and bacteria from the scalp most certainly will reduce scalp inflammation as well as the other symptoms.
Topical steroid creams are type of medication used to treat various skin disorders: eczema, rash, dermatitis etc. They should be used under doctor’s surveillance and for most of them a prescription is needed. They are categorized in four classes, where the class I creams are the strongest and class IV are the weakest ones.
At the beginning of treatment class III cream should be combined with another antidandruff products. If there is no visible progress in several days, it should be replace with the more potent one from the class I or II. Potent creams could be used once or twice per day but not more than two weeks in a row. Their use is only recommended when the symptoms are really noticeable and the condition becomes more severe.
Combined with above mentioned treatments they are also effective for recovering hair shafts damaged by scalp eczema.
