Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Sorry to hear about your persistent symptoms.

Burning scalp syndrome is due to the small fiber sensory nerve damage often for unknown reasons.

You can try nortriptyline 25 mg at bedtime daily along with pregabalin for better response.

Also Alpha lipoic acid supplement 100 mg daily should be helpful.

THis condition is due to the damage to the sensory nerve fibers from low blood flow, or sometimes autoimmune related.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
