Hi,

Since it is very hot at your place you should take showers 2-3 times a day. Use a medicated shampoo (Selsun-Selenium Disulfide) to get rid of the acne in your scalp.

Yes, you can take antihistamines (Levozal). Be careful while using Panderm skin ointment as sometimes it causes side effects that may increase our discomfort.

Eat yogurt, cucumbers, fruits & berries with porridge. Avoid non-vegetarian items for a couple of days till your scalp gets healed. Hope I have answered your query. Take care.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
