Scalp Dermatitis: You may have seborrheic dermatitis, aggravated by applying grease, pomades, or other occlusive agents. Using a shampoo that has tar for five minutes at least every five days should control it. If the condition persists, consult with a dermatologist. Seborrheic dermatitis is a chronic condition.
