Boils in scalp ; Hairloss

I have many boils on my scalp , when I touch them there is only secretions and even dandruff flakes . And the hairs fall from that area as I touch them . This sort happened last year also in May and I had used ketoconazole which had caused my strong hairs fall ; I had never experienced hair fall in my life but since I used ketoconazole my hair were never normal ; This problem had subsided when I had got my complete head shaved .. So please help me get the solution ...

Get diagnosed the reason behind your hair loss. Then proceed further
