Thanks for writing in.
The condition can be scalp psoriasis or seborrheic dermatitis.
A visit to dermatologist will allow proper diagnosis and treatment.
With treatment things can be normalized.
Till the time you can use Salisia KT shampoo and a mild steroid lotion for topical use.
Hope this helps.
