What Causes Scalp Sores

There are several different scalp sores. The most prevalent cause is seborrheic dermatitis which is also referred to as seb derm. What is it really? A Really bad case of dandruff. Seborhea is almost always linked with an excessively oily scalp and hair. There are different reasons for this and most will ask is it the excess sebum that causes the seborrhea or is it the seborrheic dermatitis that causes the scalp to secrete the excess oils. 

Does Zinc Work Scalp Issues Like Bleeding, Open Sores, White Flakey Buildup With Itching, Scalp Fungus

Zinc is a mineral that plays an important role in maintaining healthy skin and hair. It has been shown to help with dandruff by reducing the production of sebum, the oil produced by our skin, and controlling the growth of microorganisms that can cause dandruff. Additionally, zinc helps to reduce inflammation in the scalp, which can lead to fewer flakes and improved overall scalp health. Zinc is available in many forms such as tablets, capsules, and creams and can be used topically. When it comes to seborrheic dermatitis there is a special form of zinc called zinc pca. 

Zinc PCA is a type of zinc-based compound that has been used in skincare and hair care products for decades. It is known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, making it an ideal ingredient for treating skin conditions like acne and rosacea and to get rid of seborheic dermatitis on the face. Zinc PCA also helps to reduce oiliness and improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It can be found in a variety of skincare products, from cleansers to moisturizers. 

One of the best things about zinc pca is that is does an amazing job of regulating the sebum gland.

What Is The Role of the Sebum Gland in The Hair Follicle?

he sebum gland plays an important role in the hair follicle by producing a natural oil that helps keep the hair and scalp healthy. This sebum oil is produced by the sebaceous glands, which are located around each individual hair follicle. The sebum oil helps to lubricate and protect the scalp from damage, as well as providing nourishment for the skin cells. It also helps to keep the scalp moisturized and prevents it from drying out, which can lead to itching, flaking and dandruff. Without this natural oil, our hair would be dry, dull and prone to breakage. Therefore, it is essential that we take care of our sebaceous glands in order to maintain healthy-looking locks.

Excess Sebum Can Cause Problems In the Skin and Scalp

When too much sebum is produced, it can lead to clogged hair folliclescrusty scalp build up, filled pores, acne, and greasy skin. It can also cause irritation and inflammation, leading to redness and itching. In some cases, excess sebum can even lead to bacterial or fungal infections of the skin.

What Is the Difference Between Seborrheic Dermatitis on the Scalp and Dandruff?

They are similar. In analogy you might consider the dandruff and ankle sprain and the seborrheic dermatitis and ankle break. 

I have Tried Prescription and Medicated Shampoos With Tar Etc - What Can I Use Instead?

Medicate Shampoos for Dandruff and Seborrheic Dermatitis contain a variety of active ingredients that help to soothe the scalp, reduce inflammation, and eliminate the flaking associated with dandruff. Common ingredients in medicated shampoos include antifungal agents, anti-inflammatory compounds, astringents, and emollients. These ingredients work together to reduce the itching and flaking associated with dandruff while also helping to keep the scalp healthy.

However, if you are wanting a more natural, well round approach to not only improving the flaking, itching etc and want to go after a healthier scalp then you look to this guidline.

1) Unclog Scalp Pores of Buildup and Hardened and Crusty Scalp.
     This is vital to open up the hair follicles where both bacteria and fungus can thrive. If this is not done you will simply trying to get the "cat back in the bag" all the time.  (herbs thyme, sage, burdock, fenugreek)

2) Get the Scalp's PH Back To Normal
     The problem with almost every shampoo and treatment or remedy on the market for scalp problems is that they actually promote a bad ph. This allows fungus and bacteria to thrive and that means the endless cycle of inflammation. 

3) Irrigate Cleanse and Purify The Scalp To Rebuild The Natural Barrier  (thyme, sage,burdock, ivy, 

4) Use an Natural Ingredient Tested and Proven To Work On Bacteria and Fungus that cause dandruff sebohrriec dermatitis.   That in ingredient is Zinc pca.

5) Stimulate Optimal Bloodflow - Fenugreek (herb)

These ingredients are found in Zincplex Hair Care Products. I write this article to help you understand what I learned in my fight with seborrheic dermatitis. For years and years I searched until my search led me to zinc pca which led me to ZINCPLEX Shampoo, Conditioner, Scalp Lotion and Scalp Scrub. 



How To Reduce Sebum Production On the Scalp for Oily Build Up that Can Clog Hair Follicles and Pores?

The answer is zinc pca. It is a natural ingredient which was extremely important to me. One of its most impressive functions in that natural reduces (does not turn off) the sebum gland. It is more accurate to say that it regulates the sebum gland. This is very important as balance on the scalp and skin is key. Not removing ecess sebum can lead to pimples on the scalp. How to get rid of scalp pimples is similar to bumps, scalp blisters and buildup. Let the herbs irrigate and purify. A Good Detox Shampo does more than just clarify. 

Zincplex was one of the 1st Healty Scalp Shampoo to add zinc pca - hence the name Zincplex. Most add another type of zinc that in our experience, does not have the same effect as zinc pca. 

Another thing I liked about Zincplex Shampoo and Conditioner is that is hard to find those that make your hair look as full as possible. Oily hair shampoo and conditioner choices can be tough. Zincplex - both the shampoo and conditioner left my hair full and not flat.
