Sorry to hear that you scalp is very sore, although I didn't use the cold cap myself (the cap didn't fit!) I would recommend aveeno body lotion (skin relief contains Shea butter) your scalp. I use it daily on my scalp and have found it very soothing and non greasy.
hope it helps
I'm on cycle 2 of my treatment (EC) and even though I'm cold capping, I've already lost about 50% hair but I'm persevering. My problem however is that my scalp is SO sore. It feels red raw, tight and generally aches. I'd love to know if anybody else has had this and what helped? I know shaving the head will probably do it but I'm trying to find a solution that doesn't involve losing my hair.
