Thanks for writing in.

Your condition is called Seborrheic Dermatitis. It is basically an allergy to scalp fungus.
Treatment depends upon the severity of the rash.

For localised rash you may use Candid-B lotion once at night for 2 weeks, Keraglo-AD shampoo twice a week. This should help you.
However, I strongly recommend you to see a dermatologist first for appropriate diagnosis and prescription. These medications should always be used under a qualified dermatologist's supervision.

Thanks and regards
