Dry scalp can often be associated with quite a few symptoms, depending on its cause. Although it might seem relatively straightforward, these different symptoms can be important in diagnosing the underlying cause of dry scalp. It's uncommon for one case to have all of these symptoms, but just a few or even one of them could be enough to help a doctor identify the problem and rule out many others.

It's easy to confuse dry scalp for a number of similar issues. Here are some specific symptoms to look out for in identifying a condition that causes dry scalp.

Itchy Scalp

This is one of the most common and disruptive symptoms associated with a dry scalp. If the top of the head remains itchy for an extended period of time, dry scalp could be the cause. It's important to keep track of the intensity and duration of itchiness. These factors could give a doctor important information about both the severity of the problem and its cause.

Dryness can certainly lead to itchy skin on the top of the head, but there are many other possible causes as well. A combination of this and other factors is the best way to identify dry scalp.
