Itching with pus formation on the scalp after using cap for long years. Can I use ketoconazole?

I am using a hair replacement system (Basically a cap) fitted on my scalp. I have been using this system for the past 2 years. Just a few weeks back, I have started to develop itching on my scalp. Now I see redness and pus is coming out. One of my friend recommended me to use "Ketoconazole Cream 2%".
Can you let me know if I could continue use this cream ?, Or is there anything else I need to do ?.
