You need to manage the dandruff in a different manner.1st oil your scalp well with some oil you are comfortable with,then use a comb and comb out the scalp and hair well so that the dandruff flakes out.wait for half hour,then bathe your hair using anti-fungal shampoo(this is actually a fungal infection) like scalpe lotion or Danclear or Conaderm.Apply this to scalp,wait a minute then wash out the shampoo well.The important advise you must remember is to use a fresh towel,fresh comb and fresh pillow covers after each application of shampoo.From these you can otherwise get re-infected.Do this twice weekly.you will be relieved.

Hi I ve had a one month prostap injection 4 days ago and now I can t stop itching. There is no rash that I can see and the worst of the itch is confined to my scalp. Is this normal and is there anything I can do/take to relieve this symptom? Also suffering lots of hot flushes!

I was diagnosed with folliculitis on my scalp. I am on a antiobiotic, which has removed most of the burning and itching. I still burn and itch a little at night. Why is that? I am losing a lot of hair and afraid of going bald. My scalp still looks red in places. Will the itching and burning cause my hair to continue to fall out? Is there any hope that I will not lose all of my hair? I go back to the dermatologist this next week but feel like I am not doing enough to stop this from progressing and that it is a race against time to not lose all of my hair.
