Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You might be suffering from Seborrheic dermatitis. Please use Ketoconazole shampoo frequently (Ideally daily). Frequent scalp wash usually improves the condition. Also avoid hair oil application.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello. I am 29 years old and I am facing a problem with hairfall. I have a itchy scalp so I wash my hair 3-4 times a week. But the scalp soon gets oily after 4-5 hours and there are something white bits sticking to my scalp and if I scratch them I loose a strand of hair. I have tried different oils and shampoos but nothing helps. My hair are thining day by day. Sometimes small bumps on the scalp also appears. Please give me a good remedy.

I am on oral contraceptives and was on a round of antibiotics in January. Ever since then, I have been having many skin related issues. I get inflamed follicles which at first I thought were bites. I get a few each day, most go away within a day or two, but the ones on my chest remain, although faded. I have severe itching at times all over with no visible marks. I have bad dandruff, some spots of eczema. And what look like pimples on my face but don t completely go away. I ve never had pimples in my life. The itching is the worst on my scalp and outer genital area. My skin, in many places, burns at times. I also occasionally get sudden sharp pains as if someone is sticking a needle in my skin. I am now wondering if I have malassezia. Since I don t have many visible lesions, the dermatologist told me there is nothing wrong with me. I am normally a very healthy person and know that something is not right.
