I'm so allergic to everything that I am always careful about lotions, soaps, etc. so I don't think that is anything I'm using. The rheumy put me on DHEA 25 mg. daily and that made my hair horribly oily and my face broke out something terrible......I started really noticing this a day or two after I started taking the DHEA so after a month I stopped it. I was supposed to help give me some energy but it had no effects of that nature. The itching has almost gone but the oily hair remains so I know that it must still be in my system. I'm not sure what the rheumy will say about me stopping the med but you just can't run around scratching like a monkey or something!
