Hi,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
After reading your post, it appears that you are having a mixed infection of fungus and bacteria.
Apply shampoo and take bath containing the following ingredients: coal tar, ketoconazole, salicylic acid, selenium and zinc sulphate. Continue this every alternate day for 3 weeks. Then you can apply once a week or once in fortnight, depending on the response.
Your symptoms should get reduced soon in a week to ten days time.
Wish you all the best.
