Did they mention either psoriasis or eczema?
Sounds like it could be one of those.
No its much worse than either of those. I really wish there was a way to attach a picture. It started approximately 7 yrs ago when he got an infection when he got cut by clippers at the barbers. He has seen multipal drs over the yrs, yet none knows exactly what it is. They have put him on antibiotics & creams, etc. some have helped, but nothing has cured it. He is very embarrassed by it. He wears his hair long to cover it. He wants to get a better job but can't due to his long hair.
I have finally added a photo 2 my profile photos that shows his scalp. If u have any idea what this is it would help him out so much!!
