Greetings. Do not use oil on scalp. That too in those individuals who suffer from dandruff, fungal colonisation is prevalent. Oil further acts as a culture medium for fungus to grow and proliferate and cause fungal folliculitis or pimples which your wife is having. She ll need to see a qualified dermatologist and wil need to use an anti fungal shampoo. Further queries may be sent on follow up messaging. Warm regards
