Scalp Itch,Hairfall,Sebborheic Dermatitis


Q: Male, 34 from bangalore here. Lot of oil generated from scalp, hence dust/pollution accumulates, lot of scalp itching and

also hairfall(15 to 20 per day). Daily have to wash hair otherwise itching & hair fall increases. Also some 5 or 6 very

small heat bubbles (no puss) are there on scalp. Also very little dandruff is there. Otherwise, scalp is fine. This health

issue is from 1 year. Apart from this no other health issue exists. MY OBSERVATION: Whenever I take anti-fungal tablet,

itching will reduce by 50% but its not curing completely. MEDICINES USED TILL NOW : D-druff shampoo,Nizral 2% shampoo, Bio

hair shampoo , Curatio ketoconazole shampoo , Triclenz shampoo, Revitus Hair supplement tablets, Bio hair supplement tablets,

Fluefung tablet, Itra 100mg tablet. Whenever I take anti-fungal tablet, itching will reduce by 70% but its not curing

completely. DOCTOR DIAGNOSIS is Sebborheic Dermatitis. Is the diagnosis correct & is it completely curable ? Please suggest

me what do you suspect as diagnosis & cure me completely , I beg you Doctor. OR Please suggest any good doctor in Bangalore.

Thanks - Deepak Krishnamurthy
