I have an itching scalp in the area where I experience hair thinning. Could this be a symptom of MPB, or could it be a symptom of something that is unrelated to MPB but causes hair thinning?
I also have dandruff, if that matters. Although I use Head and Shoulders, there are still flakes when I itch my head.
Some people have reported an itchy scalp when they are balding. I often wonder if what these people are complaining about a scalp that gets more sun, more air movement, and gets exposed to more drying.
Perhaps in your case it’s just the dandruff causing the itch and the location of the loss is coincidental.
