Customer Question
I was in a...

I was in a car accident in 2009 in which I busted the windshield with my head. 6 years later, fibromyalgia, myalgic encephelamyalitis, and a shaved head, I found myself extracting glass that had been embedded in my scalp this entire time. This was in 2016. I have yet to be able to regulate my scalp and I still have to shave my head as it won't grow back properly in patches all over... It itches, it's painful. I've tried every shampoo and medication for seborrheic dermatitis and psoriasis you can think of, apple cider vinegar, everything. What do I do to get my hair back????

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?

2 years now. Before I got the glass out though, I was having to take 5 350mg Somas a day to attempt to keep blinding headaches and neck pains away. I have traded those for an itchy imbalanced scalp. Nothing really changes it unless I go too long without using my Clobestal shampoo. It does not fix it, but it does seem to keep the itching from flaring up.

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

The other dermantologist I saw assumed I was pulling hair out and dismissed me. I find myself NOW pulling hairs out of clogged follicles and am afraid I'm developing trichotillomania and creating permanent scarring as a result of this.

Have you seen a doctor about this and had a biopsy of your scalp?

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.
