Hi, my son who is 11 just went to the dermatologist for his eczema. I had him check his scalp since my son says he gets little itches on his head every once in a while. The derm. looked for like a minute and said yep its more than likely eczema. Everything I have read said that scalp eczema is scaly, flakey, etc. I see none of that on his head. Is it common to just have an itch here and there with scalp eczema. It seems to get worse when he sweats, gets hot, hair is wet, wearing a hat, or just sitting around. Not sure what to do at this point. He does use head and shoulders dry scalp and there are days when he doesn't itch at all and others where he seems to be more itchy. Just hoping to hear from others who might be dealing with this and what they have found that worked.
