I have itchy red spots on my scalp and also have flaking skin coming off my head. I use Biolage shampoo and conditioner... What do I do???

Depends

Your condition may be seborreic dermatitis or scalp psoriasis. These conditions are at either end of the spectrum and psoriasis is generally more severe w silvery scale and redness. Both conditions do best with rx shampoo like clobetasol to reduce inflammation. If its seb derm, an rx anti fungal shampoo is also good. OTC zinc or selenium shampoo are good but rx are better.

I have small red itchy burning red spots in my scalp. What causes this and what can I do about them? 49 female with MS

See dermatologist

Multiple_sclerosis
This does not represent MS, but certainly could be a reaction to your meds, as some MS drugs can be immunosuppressants and create an infection susceptibility. Have this diagnosed and treated and reassess your current med approach.

There are few red spots on my scalp, which makes my scalp very itchy. How to cure it permanently? Thank you

A few causes

Redness
Itchy scalp spots can be many things. I would try some anti-dandruff shampoo 3-5 time per week for a couple weeks, and if that doesn't help, then see a doctor. Sometimes, this kind of problem needs a doctors evaluation. Other things this could be include tinea capitis (fungal infection), psoriasis, discoid lupus, lichen planopilaris, early alopecia areata among many others. Get it checked out.

Your condition you describe may be head lice. Have someone search your scalp and hair carefully for lice and for eggs called nits glued to hairshaft near scalp. Call your doctor to report your situation and ask how to proceed.

Dry red spot appeared on skin by hip, rash covering my body followed. Red, circular, ITCHY, spots from neck to groin, front and back. Help!!

Rash

Dermatitis
Sounds like it could be Pityriasis Rosea a non dangerous self limiting rash in younger people. Google it and see if it matches. However, you should see a dermatologist to confirm this and to make sure you are not dealing with anything else. Hope this helps.

2 red spots where the line of the vagina starts above the clitoris in between the line red,itchy and both in exact spot in opp sides? Shaving caused ?

Could be

Pruritis
these could definitely be because of shaving, just irritation. at the same time, if you had unprotected sex, you need to watch the spots, and if they grow, start to weep or have pus, please see your primary care provider. in the future, please use protection.
