Question: For the past few months my scalp has been itchy and scaly. I pick at it and pull it out but it comes back within a few hours. My inner ears were as well but they seem to be much better in the past couple of days. Help

Brief Answer:
Seborrhea

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.

Probably you have developed seborrhea.

It's an allergic reaction of scalp compounded with fungal infection.

I treat such cases with a combination of a mild steroid shampoo like Flucinolone and Ketoconazole shampoo to be used on alternate days.

Try this for a month.
It is safe and effective.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
