Can alot of itching on top of the head that has been going

Customer Question

Can alot of itching on top of the head that has been going on for a long time, which has got worse in the last five years & when i sweat the itching is worse. I read in a health womens magazine that it could be a sign something is wrong with the kidneys. Is that true?

Hello, Dr Ashori here. Give me a moment to reply to your question.

Expert:  Dr. Ashori replied 9 months ago.

Itching on the scalp only wouldn't be a sing of kidney issues. If the itching is all over followed by scabbing of the skin then it can be an issue.

Has your doctor investigated the cause of the itching? Could be food allergies?

Expert:  Dr. Ashori replied 9 months ago.

To put your mind at ease you can have your doctor do a blood test but again, I don't think based on the symptoms you are having there should be any concern for kidney issues.
