Sensitive scalp
I have a very sensitive scalp. If I touch it with my fingers it feels like needles and even pains afterwards. Is it something I should be concerned about?

Hi Judy,
I think you should let a GP have a look - could be due to chronic neck spasm but also to inflammation of the arteries of the scalp which can be more dangerous.
