My scalp is itching a lot and it has got white staff coming from the root hairs. It started 3 months after petogen shot. I tried every shampoo for bacteria and fungi. It did not help. Some they say scalp is dry but I try to put oil and it becomes worse. Even when I stand in direct sun it starts to itch. Please help

My scalp and ear itches very badly and rhe itching is unbearable in such a way that I cannot sleep or work. The itching is somewhat controllable by taking the tablet winolap 5mg. What is the best suggestion for that as a permenant cure? I have tried all shampoos including the anti itching ones. I have seen many doctors. I really dont know what to do. Please suggest.

I have had a small red patch on my neck for around 4 weeks now but in the last week it has started to spread, the colour is less prominent but the area is growing quite large. I also have seb derm on my face especially the brow region and wondered whether it could be related to this. I am currently at university and the earliest doctors appointment is a date when I have returned home for the summer, are there any over the counter items I could buy to help with this? All the best, Sean Walsh.

For years, I've had chronic thick white ear flaking in my left outer ear (much less in my right). I clean it and within 24 hrs or less, more flakes have returned. Have tried an anti-dandruff shampoo in my ears -- This doesn't seem to make much of a difference.
