Infection at back of head in the hair

i have been suffering from some sort of infection at the back of my head, in the hair portion. It spreads around and i have consulted many doctors and also given a sample for test. Results turned out to be nothing and initially with anit biotics they vanish but soon they return. I was adviced to use external medication like a medical shampoo, given by a doctor. but still the problem persists. I would be very grateful if you can suggest a solution to the same. Thankyou.

Hai, Do you have dandruff? Repeated scratching produce recurrent infection of the scalp. Other possibility is recurrent folliculitis which needs a long term antibiotic treatment. If you are a girl lice infection has to be ruled out. Some other rare conditions have to be ruled out by your dermatologist. Consult him soon and get cured. Dr S.m
