    Default Why does my scalp itch after 24 hours of not showering ?

    For some reason, pretty much exactly 24 hours after not showering, my scalp becomes itchy and my face starts to become RED. If 48 hours, i basically start getting a pretty red T-zone on my face and a few bumps. Why is that and can i do something about it? Is mites, bacteria, oils, etc ?

    Im exactly the same, apart from having red T-zone as i have rosacea type 2. But i find my face and scalp better if i showered daily. Not sure why

    Same here. I suspect it might be dermatitis or fungi.

    I have the same. I use a shampoo with zinc in it and it seems to help. I have to wash my hair every day now otherwise it itches like crazy.

    I also have to shower daily. Ive been using a tea tree oil shampoo and body wash and ever since, Ive felt so much better! I finally was able to stop using a prescription shampoo that trashed my hair too
