White pimples on scalp
From last 4 years I am suffering from this. White pimples keep on appearing on my scalp. I have consulted more than 5 doctors. Every doctor is suggesting high power anti biotics, anti allergic, anti fungal shampoos like nizorol, Betadine etc. After using the medications for 10 days my scalp is becoming fully clear. But again after 20-25 days reappearing. I am maintaining personal hygiene and using shampoo 4 times a week. Still it reoccurs. I am not having any hairfall because of this. Please check the pics of my scalp and suggest me what to do. At least diagnose the disease so that i can take appropriate medication

From the limited information and pictures you have provided I can make out that you are suffering from seborrheic dermatitis which has the tendency to get aggravated at times. We need to treat this condition as per severity , you need to use proper shampoo depending on current condition.
Next Steps
Consult a dermatologist who will do proper examination of affected part and also check other areas which may be affected like nose, behind ears,etc
Health Tips
Avoid scratching affected areas as it may lead to bacterial infection and pain.Avoid self medications and hair oil,gels, etc as such products can aggravate this problem.
