Seborrhoic dermatit?: The scabs are probably as a result of your vigorous scratching. Chances are, you are itching secondarily to seborrhoic dermatitis. Try using a shampoo that works in fungal infection like one percent Nizoral (ketoconazole) which is available over the counter.

Only artificially.: You cannot change your genetics. You can straighten your hair with a perm or a flat-iron. You can shave your head. All of the solutions require some effort to change the natural tendency your hair has acquired through your inheritance.

Prevention: Vaniqa does not get rid of hair, it prevents hair from growing back once you have shaved or plucked it, or had it lased. You must continue to use it twice a day; when you stop, the hair will grow back.

Controlling dandruff: Dandruff (seborrhea) is common. Shampoos with zinc, salicylic acid, selenium, or coal tar are sold in many stores. Nizoral shampoo (contains anti-fungal) is also available. Doctors may also recommend cortisone or kenalog (triamcinolone) sprays. Prevent dryness (don't wash hair too often). A primary doctor or dermatologist can look for psoriasis, eczema, or fungal infections if unusual or worrisome scalp symptoms.
