1 doctor agrees
In brief: Psoriasis
Psoriasis is one possibility.
Treatment of the scalp is difficult because of the particularly thick skin, and often involves topical steroid lotion or a vitamin d preparation like dovonex. Really bad cases may need a biopsy and oral immunosuppressants initially to get the problem under control. See your doctor again or get a referral to a dermatologist if the symptoms are not under control.
