Trichodynia: pain in the scalp

The condition that is noticed by patients as uncomfortable pain, stinging, burning, tingling sensation and tenderness in the scalp, unlike headache, is known as TRICODYNA. It is more common in women and can be seen on the entire scalp as well as in the form of point areas. Hair loss in these areas often accompanies the picture. Therefore, hair loss in these patients should be carefully examined.

Trichodynia may indicate the presence of an underlying inflammation, namely a hair disease such as alopecia areata (ringworm) or a rheumatic disease such as lupus that can also affect the scalp.

Sometimes it can be a reflection of heavy worry and depression. In order to rule out hair disease, you should definitely contact your dermatologist for your scalp pain and be examined.
