Did you know eczema doesn't just appear on your body but also on your scalp? Scalp eczema causes inflamed, itchy dry skin on the scalp. This isn't your ordinary "itchy/dandruff" scalp. Scalp eczema can happen to anyone who is experiencing hormonal changes, is exposed to cold or dry air, is sensitive to hair dyes, or is sensitive to strong scents.
If the scalp eczema doesn't get treated, it can lead to infection from the build-up of natural oil and bacteria. There are products and ingredients to help treat scalp eczema, even if it has been infected, it is important to check with a doctor and receive antibiotics to treat the infected area.
Shampoo: Get yourself shampoo that is meant to heal and treat the scalp. Some shampoos dry out the scalp after you wash. You can find dandruff shampoo or shampoo for dry scalp to help treat your eczema. Try our LEMYKA Gentle Hair and Body Wash.

Scalp Oil: Scalp oil, like almond oil, chamomile oil, and tea tree oil, are great to moisturize your scalp. There are many different types of scalp oils whether it is for promoting hair growth, stopping hair loss, or preventing scalp eczema.

Coconut Oil: Another way is by putting organic coconut oil on your scalp. Coconut oil helps soothe and hydrate anywhere on the skin and scalp.
