Thanks for writing to us.
Use an antibacterial shampoo like betadine Ad/ cetrilac to wash your hair daily till the lesions subside. If the scabbed lesions are discrete then apply a steroid antibiotic cream over affected area. Avoid removing the scab and use a wide tooth comb to comb hair. The lesions should subside in few days. One should also try to rule out the cause for such lesions. It could be due to severe dandruff, boils, lice infestation etc.
Hope that helped
