  • Dear Doctor Bhandari…I pray God this letter will find you and your family in good health. I am terrible worried for my mother health issues. She is 74 years old. Recently she used a new shampoo and it gave her a lot of itching in the scalp. Dermatologists doctor saw her but no good result…the doctor said it is dry scalp and she prescribed cortisone liquid to apply to the scalp.
    I am afraid of the cortisone bad side effects, and would like to ask you , if you can give me an anti itch home remedy that I can give her or apply. The itching is constant and she is not even able to sleep.
    I really appreciate your prompt answer.

      I am also troubling with the same problem since one year. Did you find any home remedy?
      Please share, if so ๐Ÿ™‚


  • Use Apple cider vinega mixed with a little water and spray on hair. Use hair oils such as coconut oil mixed with peppermint oil or tea tree oil and leave for few hours in between washes. Reduce sugar intake and take probiotics.
