Clear discharge from scalp after washing hair, no sores present on scalp. Causes?

My ten year old son s scalp is seeping a clear liquid only at the crown of his head leaving his hair in that location sticky. His scalp looks clean, white and healthy-no sores of any kind. I ve noticed his scalp continuously leeks this fluid after he has washed and towel dried for about the next 30 mins. He s been using 2 different shampoos. What can this be?

Hello mam,

It seems that your son has scalp dermatitis which is so mild that you can't see from naked eyes. You can take following steps
1. stop hair oil
2. Daily shampoo with ARCOLANE lotion application on hair roots for 5-10 minutes followed by sebowash shampoo
