Re: not dandruff but i don't know what it is .

Try this:

one cup apple cider vinegar on dry hair and scalp. Put a plastic cap on and let it sit for at least an hour. Wash hair. Yeah your hair will smell a bit like apple cider vinegar but it will dissapate. You might try in on a weekend. Also use apple cider vinegar on a cotton ball around areas on face that flakes.

This has worked wonders for several friends of mine.

Re: not dandruff but i don't know what it is .

Have you actually ever brought this up to your doc at all?if this has been going on for years,I do think it would be time to at least discuss it,or if you have and are still having this problem,i would ask for a referral to a dermatologist at this point.it could be some skin disorder,like exczema(sp?),that will require specific types of treatment.just a thought.FB

You may want to try a low dose BComplex vitamins.

Re: not dandruff but i don't know what it is .

It definately sounds like eczema. I had the same thing happen to me. I had huge chunks of skin coming off on the back of my head. The dermatologist gave me prescription strength Nizoral which is a 2% shampoo. It's stronger then the stuff they sell in the drug store. Make sure to massage it into your scalp and let it soak in really well. The directions will be on the bottle as to how long to leave it on. It would be a good idea though to go to a dermatologist because they can write you a prescription and they can also give you a prescription for the eczema on your face too.

Psoriasis can be a cronic condition and sometimes it goes away. Just see a derm and they will have treatments to control it.

Re: not dandruff but i don't know what it is .

It could also be seborrheic dermatitis, similar treatment..shampoo and some spray. I had dry skin on my scalp, in my ears, sideburns, goatee, eyebrows, and around my nose. It is caused by a fungus in your oil glands. It's chronic, welcome to the club

I would bring it up with your doctor, could be excema, psoriasis or anything. If its excema, the water and shampoos you use are critical, because some can make it worse.

Re: not dandruff but i don't know what it is .

Hello:

I too have Eczema and been to 2 derms., but meds (shampoo/lotion/cream) taking a long time to work. I am trying the Apple Cider Vinegar now. It sounds like it works. I've seen this advice elsewhere; and I'm right on it.

Good Luck and Thanks

Re: not dandruff but i don't know what it is .

My hubby has this. The stuff on his head is controlled by shampoo. The stuff on his face (around his nose, on cheeks, in his beard, eyebrows) he uses hydrocortisone cream for. You can buy it OTC. A pharmicist recommended trying it and it's worked great so far. The stuff he uses is from a major dept. store- their brand. So it's cheap.

Hello: I tried all these this morning and it seems to have worked pretty good. But, I still am getting some of the (Vesicles/bumps with fluid) on my scalp. How often can I use the Vinegar trick? Please let me know cause my problem is really a bad case of Eczema on my scalp, hands, and it is spreading down my to forehead. I have already seen two derms. and the meds have not really helped. So, I thought I would try your advise and I did what you advised and so far I feel pretty good. But, please let me know how often I can do this treatment.

I also bought some "Aveeno" lotion/cream with Oatmeal in it that is supposed to be good.

Thanks
Alice
