I am looking for some answers to my scalp issues. My scalp developed this one grayish scaly patch that felt like a bump and would itch. I had no idea it would eventually spread to other parts of my scalp. I have to wash with medication shampoos and conditioners at least everything 3 days because at day 4 it would become extremely itchy. I have only had this problem since the beginning of this year and I’ve developed discoid eczema all down my back and chest (this was diagnosed by a dermatologist). Please help with my scalp. If I try to loosening these patches they become open wounds so they are not dandruff. I don’t know what this is. I’ve tried topical fluocinonide .05% and I’ve noticed that he hurts after application and develops scabs. Not sure if that’s a good thing. I’ve tried ketoconazole shampoo and another application....mometasone. I take Zyrtec and hydroxyzine 10 mg which were prescribed by derm. I use clobetasol application for discoid eczema on skin. I was told that scalp issues were sebo dermatitis.
