What causes flakes on the scalp leading to hair loss?

Hi. I have some fluids coming out of my scalp. Also scalp forms skin bits that later get caught in the comb and come out together with the hair - now there is very little hair left. I would like to identify what kind of desease/virus I have ; what causes it and to find solution. Thank you in advance.

Welcome to healthcare magic,
From your description it could be scalp psoriasis. You should consult a dermatologist for clinical examination and diagnosis. Scalp psoriasis can be very well controlled with treatment. I donot think that it is because of any viruses.
Hope this helped, Take care
