In brief: No
Fungal infections on scalp travel down hair follicles and require oral anti fungal medications.
Please get checked by a dermatologist who can confirm the diagnosis and treat accordingly. Usually otc ketoconazole shampoo can be used in conjunction with oral rx. But who wants cream on their hair anyway, right?
