Only ointment application is not a remedy.  The condition has to be diagnosed. Body cleansing is essential. Consult a ayurveda physician. As a home remedy you can apply Virgin coconut oil and use herbal shampoo. It can relieve the symptoms.

This may be due to excessive dryness; some oral medication, lack of nourishment to scalp, anemia or content of soap/ shampoo. Use of those steroid ointments increases your problem in long term. You need thorough oil bath on the scalp & apply coconut oil to entire body before hot water bath. Consult Ayurvedic physician. Shirodhara is recommended.
