Hi Emma -- I have had AA since March, with two active spots right now, both are regrowing in the center, and one is still shedding at the margins. My scalp is extremely itchy. It used to burn, but that stopped a while ago. I started to shave my head with the clippers, and sometimes I think that the clipped hair is sharp and irritates my scalp also. I've tried using Nizoral shampoo, and sometimes it seems to help, and other times I wonder if its irritating the situation. I noticed the intense scalp itching one or two months before the bald patches appeared. I'm seeing my dermatologist tomorrow and plan to discuss the itching. I'll let you know if they have any comment. Best, Scott
