TREATING HEAD FUNGUS - WHAT HELPS?

Quick help against annoying head fungus! When the scalp itches and burns, most women first think of dandruff. However, there is also another cause of itchy scalp that affects around 40% of the population: scalp fungus. In this article you will find out where it comes from, what symptoms it causes and what you can do about it.

HOW DOES FUNGUS COME ON THE SCALP?

Our skin is densely populated with all kinds of microorganisms. If it is particularly stressed, for example due to dehydration or excessive sweating, these can multiply excessively and cause unpleasant symptoms. One category of these organisms are the so-called skin fungi. These live on the surface of the skin and use it for self-preservation and reproduction.

WHICH FUNGUS CAUSES SCALP DANDRUFF?

Fungal infestation in the head area usually manifests itself in the form of a tense, itchy or reddened scalp. The Malassezia species represent a special case of head fungus. These multiply primarily in a warm and humid climate and also need fat for their nutrition, which is produced by the sebaceous glands of the scalp. This usually causes greasy dandruff to form on the scalp. The excessive spread of the fungi causes redness and itching of the affected areas. Most types of fungi are harmless, but they often cause unpleasant side effects that rarely go away on their own. In addition, if left untreated, head fungus can also cause hair loss. To avoid this, there are several options for treating head fungus, which are presented below.

WHAT TO DO ABOUT FUNGUS ON THE SCALP?

MEDICAL TREATMENT

A head fungus infestation should always be clarified by a doctor so that it is clear which fungus it is and the corresponding treatment is successful. There are now separate preparations for the different types of fungi that specifically kill these fungi without causing too much damage to the microflora of the scalp. Nevertheless, after successful fungal treatment, it is recommended to gently rebuild the scalp and hair using care products.

CARE PRODUCTS

Special shampoos for head fungus and dandruff are also available in retail stores. There are also various care products that can help you rebuild your scalp and hair after fungal treatment. You can use these especially if the cause of the excessive proliferation of the fungi has already been eliminated.
