Oily scalp with flakes, called seborrheic dermatitis, is common and can be due to multiple factors, including hormonal changes, diet patterns, and climatic conditions. Genetics also plays a significant role in the same. It may lead to hair fall and pimples on the scalp and may also lead to fungal infections of the scalp. The condition may appear due to the above factors. I suggest you use the following medications (consult a specialist doctor, discuss with them, and take medicines with their consent). Ketoconazole and zinc pyridine shampoo may be used for three days. Take the shampoo, dilute it with almost the same amount of water, and massage it for one minute on your scalp. Keep it for three mins and then wash off. Avoid oily food, red meat, milk, and dairy products. Consume more fruits and vegetables and drink at least 13 glasses of water a day. Do not worry, as the hair fall issue will be reduced eventually with the above treatment.
