You probably suffer from seborrhagic dermatitis of scalp caused by a fungus residing in the skin called Malassezia furfur. This is treated by lotions, creams or shampoos containing antifungals, anti-inflammatory drugs, something to decrease the sebum or keratolytic agents. The various agents used contain zinc, selenium, ketoconazole and clotrimazole. Keeping the scalp clean is very important. Sometimes Ultraviolet rays and phototherapy also helps. Hope this helps. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!
