    I've been having a lot of scalp pain and itching. Nizoral doesn't seem to help. I have started using a combo of coconut oil and tea tree oil. Maybe I need to use it more regularly? Any other suggestions that you all have found that really work? Thanks in advance.

    Nope! From what I can tell my scalp looks pretty normal. Although the rogaine irritates it sometimes.

    Emu oil works great for inflammation. Apply at least once a day.

    See what a derm thinks. Might need a biopsy.

    Let me know! I was dianosed with LPP myself but mine is really mild. Its been 3 years. Thats why I asked about the derm. There are also hair specialist derms out there too. They take a long time to get into too though but are more knowledgeable about the condition.

    My scalp used to hurt but upping my estrogen dosage made that go away. My endocrinologist thinks low estrogen levels are responsible for scalp pain.
