Looking for some advice on this nagging condition, please. I am a male and 29 years old. For the last 7-8 months I've noticed several areas of my scalp to be noticeably red and inflamed. This is affecting my crown, some parts of my sides, and also some areas above my nape. I do get random bouts of itchiness from these areas. The red areas are not flaky or raised, just noticeably red and itchy. This does not affect my entire scalp, but only specific areas mentioned above. I do notice my hair is thinner in these red patches which is very disconcerting.
I've consulted with a dermatologist and I was told it's likely seborrheic dematitis. I was given a topical solution, Clobetasol, and also capsules of Mimocycline. I've consistently used both and have had no improvement to my scalps health.
I have also tried dozens of shampoos: Tgel coal tar, tsal, Nizarol, etc. None of these have helped me any. I've also attempted herbal remedies such as apple cider vinegar washes. I've tried washing more and less as well as using and not using conditioners. No change ups seem to alter the condition.
I have never had this scalp condition in the past, and it only came about after a very stressful time in my life.
Please let me know if you have any other suggestions to try or what I can do to get this resolved.
