Hard to say: It is difficult to say without being able to examine the area. Why don't you speak with your pediatrician.
Scalp is the part of the skin on the skull, deeply attached to the skull and has the hair shafts from it. Rest of the skin in the head like facial skin (beard) has only 2 layers -epidermis and dermis. Scalp has 5 different layers unlike facial skin/rest of skin all over body. Scalp-s-epidermis, c-conn.

Sebopsoriasis: When psoriasis occurs on the scalp and face and is severe, it is called sebopsoriasis. It can usually be managed with topical therapies, but sometimes stronger systemic therapies are necessary. Unfortunately, there is no cure for psoriasis yet. Therefore, we are stuck trying to manage this chronic disease to keep the skin clear. I would see a dermatologist to help manage it well.See 1 more doctor answer

Too much bathing?: Perhaps you're showering too much. Bathing too long or too often dries out the skin, making it flaky. Unless you're doing lots of sweating, you don't need to bathe every single day. Our skin was made to survive in the jungle. If you do bathe daily, it should be a quick one. Treat your skin gently. Put lots of heavy moisturizer (like Eucerin) on after bathing. See if that doesn't solve the problem.
See your derm: Don't do this on your own as you are at risk of scarring. See your dermatologist to take care of it. Good luck!
The dead skin on my huge blister was removed and covered with a plaster but now is pussing alot is this ok?
Pus is never good: Pus is never a good thing. In general, we don't recommend draining blisters or pulling off skin as it's sterile if unbroken and non-sterile once broken. Regardless, if you see pus, it's now time to see your GP. If you can't get there today, go to closest A&E.See 1 more doctor answer
