When I take lugols iodine (7%) I seem to get alot of dandruff in the next few days that is thick and slightly oily, and my scalp also gets itchy. Why is that?
Also I have slight fat lumps on my head that go straight over the top of my scalp length ways, why the hell are they there?
They look like a very subtle version of this:
Cutis verticis gyrata
And Ive ALWAYS had a lot of dandruff since I was a kid, I dno why the hell i ALWAYTS get it?

My guess would be that the Lugol's is stirring up the candida, which can cause dandruff and itching. While you are working on your candida/thyroid issues -- with the spot-on and invaluable advice from Iolite on the Candida Support Forum -- you might try an anti-dandruff shampoo with zinc or selenium. See if that helps control the symptoms. I've used an after-shampoo rinse of cider vinegar for mild itching, but it might not be effective for what you're describing. Reducing your candida levels is ultimately what needs to happen.
