Hi ,

Thanks for writing in.

Most likely cause in your case is seborrheic dermatitis.

My advise to you would be to use good antidandruff anti seborrheic dermatitis shampoo like nizoral.

Also you can nizoral cream,they will help.

Wash your scalp on alternate day.

Apply hydrocortisone cream over the flakes.

Hope this helps.
