Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No. Blistering.no sign of anything but little redness behind my ears.my doc looked at my scalp but couldn't see anything. Gave Mr stieprox shampoo but this didn't do anything.scalp feels tight dry and hot

Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 2 years ago.
OK
this is not still from the previous shampoo
How long has that been?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes from shampoos with beach about. 6 weeks

Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 2 years ago.
OK
If you doctor could not see anything, this is not from the shampoo.
What other medical diagnoses do you have?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I have very bad sinus infecctions

Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 2 years ago.
OK
It is not clear what is causing your skin sensation
But it can be from
iron deficiency
allergy
contact allergy
B vitamin deficiency
parasite infection
autoimmune disease...
other problems
I suggest you go to a dermatologist...get your doctor to refer you, to see if this is skin related, or illness related.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
