Tea tree: While tea tree oil has antiinflammatory properties , salicylic acid shampoo such as t-sal by neutrogena may be helpful for dry itchy scalp . See your dermatologist for the best treatment options.

None: There is no good tea tree preparation. Why are you taking griseofulvin? Find a better DR. I suggest a dermatologist.
