Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good evening, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us this evening.
What have you used for this so far?
Good evening, I will try and provide an answer, but please do feel free to discuss this further.
Dry skin on the scalp can be from a fungal cause, dermatitis cause, psoriatic cause along with a few others.
If you are getting much dandruff I would start by using something to loosen the skin, such as Ketoconazole shampoo in combination with a tar based shampoo. These treat any fungus which could cause this, as well as treat minor psoriasis.
If this is of no benefit, then there are topical scalp steroids which may be more appropriate.
I hope this helps. But I would see about someone examining you to ensure you are treated appropriately.
