In brief: Don't use baby shamp

Baby shampoo is TERRIBLE for an itchy scalp.
It is the wrong pH. The pH keeps it from burring little eyes, but it is not good for your hair. Probably made it worse. Selsun Blue is a better choice.There are also prescriptions that a physician could prescribe

Dove soap and topical hydrocortisone lotion may help as well.
