Extreme dandruff and Itching in scalp
I have been having this problem for a couple of years and have been given anti-dandruff treatments by salons and dandruff doesn't get any better. There is extreme itching sensation in the hair and sometimes even there are lumps in the skull. The itching is so bad that it bleeds upon times of scratching.

Hi! You could be having some severe form of dandruff. Dandruff is a common occurence. It has a tendency to recur. You have to take continuous efforts to keep it at bay. 1. Shampoo hair as frequently as required. Keep the hair clean. 2. Avoid hair styling products till dandruff goes off. 3. Use anti dandruff shampoo which contains ketoconazole once or twice a week. 4.Oil clean washed hair. 5. Do not try to scrape or comb away the flakes. Be gentle with your hair and scalp. 6. Wash your combs and brushes regularly. Do not share them.
