Tender scalp

Hi. I am 14 days first chemo EC and hair loss started with a vengeance - my scalp/head feels very tender and sore Anyone else experience this ? Not sure can do anything about it ?

Hi there,


So, so sorry you are going through this … my hair started falling out at 12 days and I remember it clearly.  Yes it is normal for it to feel sore and tender when your hair is falling out. The only thing that relieved it for me was to have it clippered to a number 2 all over. I remember the sense of relief and also it wasn’t as distressing as seeing all the hair falling out.


All the best to you xx 

Thank you - good to know this is normal
