Dermatologist 's  Response
HCM is your perfect choice.
If you are >15 years of age your scalp condition is likely Seborroeic dermatitis, an eczema on hairy area or psoriasis, a chronic skin disease. Whatever the cause you should confirm your diagnosis with help of a dermatologist. Then you start treatment.
I like to suggest you to confirm your diagnosis first.
but you could continue Medicated shampoo until consult a dermatologist.
