Dark chocolate and scalp irritation ?

Hi guys, i'm having a problem.

I'm in paleo, so not eating dairies, legumes and cereals at all, but I have a defect... I'am eating A LOT of dark chocolate everyday ... like more than 150grams per day, and these last days I started to feel like a rush and a burning sensation on my scalp. I'm 20 years old, I don't have an hair loss, my father is 50 and still got all his hair. Could it be the chocolate, who's irritating my scalp? what do you think?

Lay off for a week or more and see what happens. Pretty simple to figure this one out, or at least rule out the chocolate from being the cause.

I eat 100g of 90% dark chocolate almost every day. Some days I go as high as 150g. I'm actually typing this while munching on some chocolate this very moment. Personally, I have never experienced any scalp irritation. I do sometimes get queasy though, but that's from the caffeine and theobromine so nothing unexpected about that. Maybe it's something else?

Hard to say from the limited info, but, it might be shingles. Not fun. If it is, high arginine foods, including chocolate are not for you. also see: http://www.everydayhealth.com/shingles/scalp-problems.aspx
