Suffered from flaky itchy scalp with hair loss

Hi I am a mother of a 24 male losing his hair . He has always suffered from itchy flaky scalp and for last two years he has been losing a lot of hair from top of his head . His dad was 43 before he lost any hair so this is very distressing for him. He has a major problem with severe dandruff and so washes his hair with polytar every two days. This helps clear it but then it comes straight back. His scalp is tender to touch I have tried everything possible for him. Special products, shampoos without chemicals but nothing works. His dad and grandad both had bad scalps but they didn t lose their hair until mid 40s. Any suggestions ?

Welcome to healthcare forum
It is seborrhic dermatitis. the upper epidermis of the scalp is getting peeled out and thgats why he is having more dandruff and hair falling. homeopathy treatment is helpful in this case.

dear friend,
if you can get an oil called durvadi kerathailam, ask him to apply a little bit on his scalp (not only the hair) 15- 30 mins before taking his bath every day. do not use any shampoo. with in two days the itching should stop. but continue it for three weeks. if he gets cold or cough, stop the oil and once his cold is gone, continue the oil. only little oil is necessary. just use enough so that it wont be oily after bath.
hope i was helpful
thank you.
