What are some ways to relieve scalp eczema?

Scalp eczema can be a challenge. How do you get your scalp back on track?

  1. A number of years ago tar shampoo was used to treat scalp eczema. These days shea butter for a tea tree oil can help moisturize the scalp and do wonders. Hope this helps.

  2. I haven't found anything that helps yet. I have put a few drops of teatime oil in baby shampoo it it will give a bit of relief for a day.

    1. Thank you for your honesty and for sharing your tip about the oil. It can be difficult to find something that helps and that's exactly why I started this thread. -Sarah (AtopicDermatitis.net Team Member)

  3. What tends to help me is when I have scalp eczema flared not getting my hair wet and applying ointments. What I also tend to do is when it becomes less irritated I end up using head on shoulders and that seems to help to keep my eczema at ease and itchiness as well.
