Hair feels stuck or glued to scalp............

Why is my new scalp hair growing against my scalp? It's like I have "runners" of hair growth. I can see my hairs through a thin, transparent layer of skin. Sometimes the hair comes out of the skin, makes a loop, and goes back into scalp. Is there anything I can do besides "live with it?" This is what my Derm said. He's a fantastic Derm but surely there is something I can do. Thanks, Sandy

An exfoliant might help or some acid (eg lemon juice) rinse to soften up the skin and release the fibers. As I think I responded to your message elsewhere on the board, if the scalp is inflamed you may find such treatments painful so be careful if you try a treatment. Some derms treat such problems with topical retinoids which slow down skin cell growth - but retinoids bring the risk of potentially slowing down hair growth too.
