Hello.i think it is seborrhic dermatitis.it can be cured by sebowash shampoo .oral antifungaals.antibiotic and application of sternon-S lotion over the scalp.if not subsided use isotretinion 10 mg daily
HI, Thanks for writing in. The condition can be scalp psoriasis or seborrheic dermatitis. A visit to dermatologist will allow proper diagnosis and treatment. With treatment things can be normalized. Till the time you can use Salisia KT shampoo and a mild steroid lotion for topical use. Hope this helps. Regards DrSudarshan MD Dermatology
