Has anyone else ever have to deal with ths condition? I tend to get it in my scalp, and it makes me itch and I get scabs and flakes all over it. If I grow my hair out too much, it drives me nuts, so I tend to keep my hair very short, almost bald to let my scalp "breathe" - I usually ask for a close shave when I'm at the barber shop, but my barber cut it WAY too short this weekend, so I can see patches of dermatitis all over my head. I've been wearing hats or hoodies, because they look bad. My mom has this condition too (I've read it's hereditary), and she's suggested Tea Tree Oil and Paul Mitchell shampoo with tea tree oil. I already use a medicated shampoo with Salicylic Acid in it, or I switch it with Coal Tar Shampoo (i.e., T-Gel). I may have to go to a dermatologist for something stronger.
Anyone else have this condition? Any suggestions on any shampoos or home remedies? I've had it on and off since I was a child, and it's REALLY annoying.
