I recently had a long battle with stubborn lice, or at least we thought. Dr gave said I was clear and scalp was just irritated but there's tiny black dots falling out of my hair I have painful almost pimple looking things all over and seems like more and more and my hair is falling out

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

My scalp still feels like it's crawling and itches worse. Also, I noticed my dog has been itching and saw he has black dots hair loss and I a tiny "thing" that was stuck to hair I pulled out

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Noth that would effect my scalp. It feels better when it's wet and seems to be worse at night

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
