Re: I pick on my scalp to carve out dandruff, and it bleeds
Sometimes dandruff shampoo makes dandruff worse. I get dandruff in the winter, and this past winter, I decided to try Head and Shoulders shampoo. It made it noticably worse- more flaking, and it made my scalp 5 times more itchy! I asked my hairdresser about it, and he said certain formulas of dandruff shampoo can make it worse, and he gave me a couple suggestions for other types of dandruff shampoo, but none of them worked and made it worse. So maybe you can try using a regular shampoo if you've been using only dadruff shampooos for a long time.
