Itchy scalp: Itching of the scalp can have several causes. Dandruff is the most common cause and is believed to be caused by a yeast. Head & Shoulders contains zinc pyrithione, which is an anti-yeast medication. For some, this works well.

I cleansed eczema on my face with an alcohol wipe then applied betamathasone 0.05% to reddened areas. Just want my skin to clear up already. Bad idea?
Moisturize!: If you have eczema, you must keep your skin moist. Anything that dries your skin will irritate it more (alcohol wipes are included here). Most dermatologists recommend inert emollients, such as vaseline. Strong steroids, such as betamethasone, need close monitoring and direction by a physician, particularly on the face where desonide is usually preferred. ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you, however, what you described suggests viral conjunctivitis. Wash your face and eyes with cool water and ascertain that your eyesight is not impaired. If your eyesight is impaired or the symptoms do not get better in two days, please consult a doctor. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

I was told to treat my blemished skin with antioxidents does that mean apply something like a lemon to my skin?
No: Lemon would not remove your blemish if its as a result of hyperpigmentation. Assuming your blemish is not as a result of a dermatological infection or malignancy, your best bet is to use a cream or lotion that contains some hydroquinone. You should be able to get the 2% strength or lower over the counter from your pharmacist. Stronger formulations require a doctor's prescription. Good luck! ...Read more
