Sore & Tender Scalp

Hi Everyone

Just looking for a little advice really. Ive already shaved my hair - im at a number 1 i recko although its grown a little since I shave it a week ago. Im 16 days post 1st FEC

However over the last 2 days my scalp is just so very very sore. Is the only fix a full blown bald shave or will the tenderness pass in a few days regardless.

Im prepared to go full shave if it will help - I just cant imagine my hubby shaving it at the moment being so very sore.

Appreciate any tips you can offer

Many thanks :slight_smile:

Hi lisa

I found the pain passes in a few days regardless… Might be about 4 or 5 days… But if it’s sore today it will most likely start coming out tomorrow.

Hi Lisa,

That sounds exactly like mine was a day or so before it all fell out (mine pretty much all fell out over a couple of days!). The hair follicles can get quite tender and inflamed but this usually goes off quite soon after the hair actually starts falling off. My head was only sore for about 2-3 days.

OK thanks ladies - I will keep going for a couple more days and see how it goes. If it aint one thing its tuther! lol

Hi Libralady. I found that my scalp was sore and tender similsr to when I used to wear my hair in a pony tail. It was like this as the hair prepared to fall ou and lasted a few days as Lulu says. Also found a similar discomfort asmy eyebrows fell out! Don’t think I would bother shaving it again.
