Itchy, greasy scalp with blisters post head bath, gets white oily particles on combing, on thrush treatment. Advice?

Hi, I am a 32 yo female. My head has been itching for a while like crazy, especially when it gets greasy (normally on a second day after washing). I ve got some blisters on my scalp from scratching and a burning sensation. I have no head lice and when I comb my hear, I have lots of white round particles (like little rocks, not flakes) coming out, they feel oily when I squeeze them. Normally I am a very healthy person, doing some strength training and eating healthy food, especially loads of salad, although I can behave totally opposite sometimes. I am not overweight , but not skinny either and trying to loose some weight and shape up a bit. At the moment I am undergoing a thrush treatment in order to suppress it, as been having problems with it for some time. Any suggestions what that could be? Thank you

The itching in the scalp and the falkes is most likely to be dandruff. It will reduce by using antifungal shampoo and washing your hair regularly. Meet a dermatologist to get the right kind of medicine.

I hope you found my response to be helpful and informative. If you have any additional concerns I would be happy to address them.

Your symptoms sound like you have seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp.,also known as dandruff.1st of all you must take a course of antibiotic to clear the scalp infection causing pain and burning.Then please use an anti dandruff shampoo with an antifungal like conaderm,or Scalpe lotion twice a week after combing your hair.the method will be detailed on the bottle.But make sure you change your pilow cover and towel for the head each time you use the shampoo.Recurrence of infection can occur from these things that come in contact with your head.I hope this answers your question.
