I have seen your query and concern.
- It seems you are having seborrheic capitis.
- Seborrheic capitis is a papulosquamous disorder involves sebum-rich areas of the body, which is scalp.
- Intermittent active phases manifesting with burning, scaling and itching and alternating with inactive periods. The activity is increased in winter and early spring with remissions commonly occur in summer.
- Sometimes, fungal etiology is there. Otherwise, it is idiopathic.
The Probable causes:
Oily skin and excess sebum secretion.Differential diagnosis:
1. Seborrheic capitis.Probable diagnosis:
2. Tinea capitis.
Seborrheic capitis.Treatment plan:
I would suggest you Sebowash (Fluocinolone) shampoo twice weekly. It has to be applied on scalp and left for 15 minutes before you wash. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the treatment with consent.Preventive measures:
You should not apply hair oil. You can use conditioner and shampooing regularly rest of the day.Regarding follow up:
