A dental syringe — like the type used to irrigate after tooth extraction — is very helpful when applying solutions to the scalp. The very fine tip allows you to apply slowly, keeping the medication on the scalp instead of saturating the hair. This also allows more pinpoint application and decreases the amount of steroid exposure. — Linda Kenison, RN-C, San Diego (156-14)
