Just wondering if anybody has had that, where very small parts of the scalp has felt inflamed. The thing is, this is where my hair is also thinning more so than other areas of the scalp. It could be a coincidence, I guess.

I'd be hard pushed to believe it's the shampoo, as it's only got natural ingredients in it.

    Belladonna is natural. Arsenic is natural.

    There is a popular misconception, pushed by manufacturers, that natural = good and chemical = bad.

    Hi, I also get this and have discoid lupus alongside RA. The discoid causes my scalp to be inflamed. Eucerin do a calming scalp ointment which is very good & antihistamines may help. If it does not settle I would mention it to your rheumy x
