Itchy yellow crust on scalp, neck joint, front scalp, painful, bleeding scab on scalp. Relief treatment?

I have a yellow crust on the bit where my scalp meets my neck , as well as at the front of the scalp and around the ears. It isn t painful but itches a lot. I have a large scab on my scalp, which is different. It also itches but it bleeds frequently and hurts like hell. Ive tried shampoos to no avail, and I have no idea what it.

Hello,
Thanks for the query,

You might have developed eczema.

Your description matches with this.

It presents as a oozing itchy lesion.

It is an allergic condition.

You might have developed allergy to a particular thing.

Apply a mild steroid lotion like desonide,

Also take an antihistamine tablet.

This will give you some relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
