Anyone have a really itchy scalp while taking methotrexate?

And, if so what do you guys do about it? I am contemplating buying a different shampoo, because I don't want to give up on this drug, just because my scalp itches. It's annoying, but not unbearable. I think I might have a rash on my head, and I don't know if it's from the drug, or if this is a new symptom....or what? It showed up two weeks into Methotrexate.

I've been on MTX for about 6 weeks now and my scalp is also starting to itch like nobody's business. It is driving me nuts. My scalp is also sort of painful to brush also. I would love to hear if anyone has any suggestions. I've tried cutting my hairwashing to every other day to see if that helps.

I also have scalp issues: itching, redness, and burning. My symptoms are result of my SLE. My doctor has prescribed Olux and Luxiq for my scalp. They come in foams, which I put on my scalp nightly. Olux for when it is really uncomfortable and Luxiq for every day. They have really helped.
