5 out of 5 stars

I was recently diagnosed with LPP due to severe itching I was experiencing. I had a scalp biopsy to confirm it. They gave me doxycyline & topical prednisone. I only used the prednisone a couple times for the severe itching outbreak which reduced about 80%, but due to the bad side effects I didn't want to continue using prednisone. I've used Emu oil in the past for my scalp and it's very nice. It is nice oil that doesn't clog pores, has anti-inflammatory & anti-fungal properties and no side effects. You just put a few drops on your fingertips, rub them together & run your fingertips all over the itching scalp areas. It's ok to put more drops of Emu oil if you need more, it's non-greasy & the scalp absorbs it easily. I have switched from prednisone to Emu oil for continued maintenance to control the inflammation & itching. So far, so good, it's working well.
