showering could be the problem. if you have a easily dried out scalp, the shower will do it. ask your doctor about the sores, they could get contaminated.

Go to your dermatologist and ask what medicine she can give you. You can also try medicated shampoos like head and shoulders. If all of that fail Vaseline will work fine.

I'm not the one who suggested it though

Vaseline will justd stop make hair greasy,the tea tree oil should work,if not,see a dr...and stop scratching it
Report as
Oh and if you're washing it too much,or using too hot of water,that will also make it worse. Every 2-3 days to wash is sufficient unless you have really greasy hair

That's what I've been doing. The tea tree oil is helping, thank the Lord!!! Because I can't go to the doctor

I use sulfur 8 found at Walgreen it works better than anything else I have ever tried. Sometimes because I work in medical field I need to Mix in shower with shampoo so my hair doesn't look greased. It has really worked out great.

Head and shoulders will work. But only the one for dry scalps. It could help.

Tea tree oil..If you're somewhere that has a Walgreen's,or CVS,in the aisle with the hair care is tea tree oil,a few drops rubbed into the scalp after washing will do the trick,IF it's just dandruff. If nothing's working it might be psoriasis or something. Head and Shoulders and the like is ok for your scalp,but horrible for your hair. (Used to be a hairdresser,should know..)

coconut oil is my favorite. not only does it get rid of dry scalp it is good for your hair and your skin. it has tons uses so buying the big jar at walmart for 6.99 will last ou a while unless you are me:)
