Itching scalp after shingles
In april 2010 I had shingles and it started above my left eye. Since then whenever I colour my hair I battle with a dry,itching scalp that does not want to go away. Could the nerve endings on my head still be sensitive or have I developed a allergy to something in the hairdye? And what should I do?
