I’am 14 weeks postpartum. Past 10 days or so I have this tingling/burning scalp. No itching at all. No other major symptoms. Read online and got a lil freaked. I have some dandruff. Wondering what is causing the severe burning sensation.

    It could be related to the dandruff you are experiencing or other skin diseases. It is common where disorders of the cervical vertebrae/nerves can causes these symptoms which may be more likely in new mothers (bad sleeping posture due to lack of sleep, attending to baby feeds in bad positions and changes in gait and sudden reduction in body weight after delivery). Rather speak to your doctor who can assess it and give you a more definitive answer.
