Brief Answer:

Possible parasytes or fungal infection.

Detailed Answer:


You need someone to examine your scalp is the doctor didn't do it. It can be a fungal infection or parasyte.

if the skin of the scalp is clean, no scales or white patches, then you can try and take shampoo for parasytes which you can buy over the counter as use it according the directions in the box.

In the other case, you might need a shampoo used against fungal infections. It can be bought over the counter too.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
