Allergic to boar's hair?
dldaugh posted:
I've experienced severe itching on my scalp and forehead the past few days. There is no redness or rash, and fortunately no sign of scabies or lice. I have not switched to any new soap or detergent. The only thing I can think of is that I'm allergic to the boar bristle brush I started using last week. I'm not allergic to any other animals. Could the allergy be that specific?
