Question: I have scalp concerns, please help.

Hi, I have a serious problem with my scalp. I am not sure if it is dandruff or eczema, but it causes serious dryness on other parts of my body like around the nose, ears etc and as my hair grows it gets worse. I have been using anti- dandruff shampoo now for years, but it doesn't treat the symptoms. I was advised to use Lavender teatree shampoo (Paul Mitchell product) and baby soap and Epi max. What would you advise?

Answer

I would advise for you to go see your pharmacist who will recommend a hair/scalp rejuvenating shampoo.  But it might be advisable for you once you’ve tried the shampoo and there is no result to go see your doctor who should be able script something a bit stronger that should help your symptom.
