you might be suffering with scalp internal infection or inflammation (swelling).suggesting you to consult the doctor /dermatologist for investigation, first of all we have to trace the disease, than take a proper treatment. you can also move for Homeopathic treatment.

NO, suppose you have any infection/inflammation that must be treated in a proper way, you can use homeopathic "Arnica hair oil & Jaborandi hair oil " uses daily on alternate basis, for hair loss

Dermatologist Dr. Gaurav Patel's  Response
no cream u have will be useful
u have infection over scalp
apply only antibiotic cream till u consult doctor,
u can take analgesic and antibiotic tab if u have.
pain killer cream or balm will increase ur problem,so dont apply them
use ur separate comb and towel
dont touch or scratch the lesion

Hi,Rachel,thanks for your query.Routine analgesic cream can not be applied on the scalp.You may have more problems if the skin there is broken.The best thing to do is visit a doctor any get diagnosis first.In mean time you can apply any oil,non medicated one to soothe the skin and have relief from pain.You can take any analgesic tablet you are comfortable with so that you become comfortable and if any swelling is there it will also reduces.bye.
