Hi there. Thank you for posting your question with Healthcaremagic. I will do my best to help you.
I suspect that your intermittent scalp irritation
is being caused by one of those chronic scalp conditions like seborrheic dermatitis
And because it responded so quickly to a topical application I suspect that this contained a mild steroid
. This is a safe and effective treatment. Betacort Scalp Lotion is such a preparation but there are several others just as good. Take care.
I hope that I have answered your questions fully and been of some help. If you have anymore questions please contact me again anytime.
Dr Andrew Rynne.
