On my head some four to five spots of white powder like substance is forming. Initially I had it only on two spots but now it became five spots. If it is dandruff entire head part will occur but mine is different. I have lost some hairs on surrounding affected spots. Please tell me what has happened. What treatment I have to take? Kindly suggest.

I actually consulted a RMP doctor. He gave Cloben G ointment for that. I have been applying it for a month. It had clearly gone but whenever I stop using ointment it starts again. Then doctor gave Zole-F ointment but this ointment did not suit me I guess. From yesterday onwards my position on my head is like on the photographs. And also I have been suffering from itching too. I have the same below my ribs and also on stomach. I have applied the ointment on them also as seen in other two photographs. Please help.
