Doctor :   HI
User :   On the back of my scalp I have itchy flaky skin. It spread to the back of my neck about 3/4 of an inch down and maybe 1 and 1/2 inches across. This spot on my neck is itchy and flaky, as well as red around the edges. I'm using head and shoulders shampoo and it has improved some but it's not clearing up well. Do you think this is dandruff, psoriasis, ringworm or something else.
