In brief: Scalp Hygiene

You should see a dermatologist, in the meantime applied a shampoo which will be useful for fungal and bacterial infections.
It also will be useful, if you could have your hair cut Short. As you have lymph nodes in your neck is quite possible that you have an ongoing infection, you will require culture and sensitivity of the organism and started on antibiotics
