Dandruff, big masses of scabs on scalp, clear fluid discharge. Treatment?

For about six weeks now my scalp has been super crusty.. its like dandruff but the flakes of skin are like masses of scabs and when I scratch them they leak a clear fluid.. I have been using head and shoulders for a week now and no improvement.. What is it from and how do I treat it? Should I be worried? Disease? Infection?

Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello dear,
Thanks for writing to us.
Thick scales on scalp with oozing suggests that you have seborrheic dermatitis,
which has got infected and eczema has developed in it.
use sebowash shampoo, it is mild steroid, you will get relief with it.
For further details please meet a dermatologist
wishing you good health.
Thank you
