Terrible Head Scaling, Very Itchy, Possible Mold Issue
I am 39, thin and a female, bodybuilder. I first started noticing a problem about 2 1/2 years ago. I became allergic to makeup, and beauty products. My eyes would swell up. I remembered being allergic to formeldehyde in nail polish when I was 20, so I began to study the ingredients in all my products. I studied all the different names for formeldehyde ( which is used as a preservative in so many popular beauty products ). Imadazolydinal urea, urea, DMDM hydantoin, quaternium 15, Cinnamal, and Geraniol were in most department store and drug store items...shampoos, lotions,and makeup. Whatever sits on your skin all day is worse than something you wash off like shampoo, but that is not good either for your head. I began purchasing only all natural, nonchemical products. This cured my eyes, but I have terrible head scaling...chunks of dead skin come off in sheets and large flakes. Very itchy, and I seem to dig at it. Also at this same time I first began to notice my head itch, I was staying in a remodeled condo which had previously had a bad mold problem. There were new walls, and carpet installed because of mold when I stayed there for a month, sleeping on the new carpet on the floor. Could this have started the problem ?? I now buy all organic products from health food stores. I read all labels, and avoid chemicals as much as possible. Maybe a lot of people who have SB are alllergic to chemicals in their hair, or skin products, causing the original problem here ( SD ). Many commercial hair remedy shampoos have the chemicals I mentioned here !! Worsening , or actually causing the problem !! Nizoral has quaternium 15 etc etc. Read labels, and use holistic cures !! I have not been able to resolve this. Tee tree oil makes my head peel!
