How do I keep my scalp from falling off?

I'm getting ready to go to Maryland again. Last time I was there for a month and at about 2wks in my scalp was starting to itch, get pussy, and peel...I think it was the humidity, I'm use to dry heat. It was like I was a horse with rain rot!!! What shampoos and products can I use to help keep my scalp dry and healthy? Do I need a prescription? I do NOT want to go through that again, yikes!

  • I live in MD and just bought Denorex because my head has been itching a lot lately. I didn't know why but maybe it IS an "MD thing". Anyway, I've only used it once but it helped tremendously!

  • It almost sounds like your scalp is getting sunburned. I would ask my doctor if I were you. You can buy a good shampoo with sunscreen if that is what it is.
