Scalp is very smelly, I must wash hair everyday. Used dandruff shampoo and ketoconozale. Doctor has not diagnosed, says keep using shampoo. What is it?
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.
