So glad i stuck to the tea tree oil rather than giving up after two days. The inflammation has nearly disappeared, and the scales on my scalp are finally starting to heal, and they're a lot smaller than they were the day I started the TTO treatment. My scalp isn't oily anymore, the scales are finally drying out and flaking off bit by bit. I think the itchiness I've been experiencing the last few days has been from the spots on my scalp trying to heal. Hopefully it only gets better from here on. Still dealing with the stuck on flakes though, maybe I'll ask my derm about a 3% salicylic acid solution to remove them. And demanding I get my iron levels checked. I have almost all of the symptoms of iron deficiency. I never realized over the last few years that my fatigue could be related to it. I find myself ready for a nap not even an hour after I wake up from 7-8 hours of sleep, my hands and feet are always cold, and I get out of breath fairly easily when it comes to strenuous activity.
