Suggest treatment for itching in the scalp

MY LEFT side of my scalp has been red tender and itching for weeks now. Little bump have popped up very small and are tender. I saw a dermotologist and he prescribed Clobetasol 0.05% along with a anti fungal shampoo and it s a little bit better but no significantly. Please help

General & Family Physician 's  Response

Your symptoms seem to be related to a fungal infection. As I see through the query you have already used medications to treat the fungal infection. I suggest to continue the medications as prescribed by your GP.

I also suggest using a anti-fungal medication such as Diflucan for three days.

Hope my answer was helpful. If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.
