RE: Burning scalp with menopause anyone??

I haven't had a burning scalp on a daily basis. But on occasional days I notice my scalp feels like it's burning or extremely sensitive if I touch it, for example when trying to shampoo, towel dry or brush my hair. However, oddly enough, I am not aware that my scalp is burning/painful unless I do gently touch a finger to my scalp. I'm also having the other typical menopause symptoms you mentioned, as well.
