on analysing your clinical condition,probably you have seborrheic dermatitis[severe].I would recommend you to take C.Canditral or C.Sporanox 100mg in the morning for 2 weeks and for the scales you can use Noskurf applied by night and washing your scalp the next day with Nizoral1% shampoo thrice weekly and for itching T.Vozet 5 mg by night and report to me after 2 weeks.
