I mentioned that I sunburned my scalp on my campig trip ("n" still withheld for maddeningly particular reasons). This is a thing that happened.
What is now happening is that we have advanced into the peeling stage, with which you may be familiar. When it happens on your scalp, though, it manifests itself in a manner pretty much indistinguishable from a serious dandruff problem. I'm sort of tempted to go buy some Head & Shoulders just to see if it'll somehow help. Because right now I'm afraid to touch my head.
