I just starting wearing lace system for about 1 week and I noticed little itchiness and scalp acne where close to tape/glue area. Other than that, it's all great!. I was wondering if any product can treat scalp itchiness and scalp acne or generally calm scalp skin?

For some people, acne on the scalp is much more than the odd pimple near the hairline Washing your hair with tar soap is also a popular treatment. Clean the skin around acne with camphor or salicylic alcohol. Prepare a mask of 2 tablespoons of honey and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Mix the ingredients and apply the mixture on the scalp for twenty minutes.

Hey! I have seborrheic dermatitis so know what you're going through! Best bet is in the shower!
Nioxin conditioner 1- gives amazing tingle that feels like it works. (avoid shampoo) Avoid - xylensulfonate
Also, surprisingly, head and shoulders!
And anti fungal wash. Good luck!

Hi NYCkat - don't neglect itchiness, because it could be caused by an allergic reaction to the adhesive. If it gets out of control it might mean you can't wear your unit till it has healed, which obviously can put you in difficulties. I suggest you get some scalp protector asap. It is a liquid which dries to form an invisible barrier on your scalp, insulating your skin from the adhesive. Hopefully that will cure the problem. In the longer term I would suggest you experiment with different adhesives, till you get one which suits your skin. What adhesive are you currently using?
