    Itching is a one of the side effects of PTU but can occur in hyperthyroidism as well. You should speak to the endocrinologist managing your condition about this symptoms. Topical applications may provide some symptomatic relief or alternatively the dosage of PTU may have to be altered. This can only be decided upon further examination. It is possible that this itchy scalp has nothing to do your thyroid problem or the medication.
