I’ve had burning scalp and skin for 3 weeks after leaving hair dye on too long. My doc thinks it’s anxiety or the nerves in the scalp are having polyneuropathy so she started me on lexapro. I was on 5mg for 7 days and started 10mg today. It made my burning worse all over my body. Could feel the burn travel from scalp to legs. I called doc and she told me to stop taking it. I have Xanax to help. I am sure freaked out about all this burning sensations. Sometimes it feels like someone pokes me with a toothpick in my scalp. I took more b12 drops and that made it worse. I’m not going to take anymore lexapro. Please, can someone tell me why the burning is relentless. It’s making me even more anxious and want to jump out of my skin. I feel very fragile. Please can someone offer advice. Thank you.
