Brief Answer:
Possible resistant scalp infection.Please upload images of shaven scalp

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir.

This looks like a resistant fungal infection.

I can guide you better , if you can upload images of your scalp.

At this point, it's advisable to completely shave your scalp hair to get a better view of the entire scalp.

Once I receive the images, I will guide you through.

Thank you.
