| | Flaky scalp, not dandruff??
Hi... I was wondering if any of you had any suggestions for my husband. He has terribly a flaky scalp that is a little embarrassing to both of us. I And sometimes were talking snow shoulders here. Well, at my suggestion, he started using dandruf shampoo, which did not help at all. Actually it seemed to make the problem worse. When I examined his scalp, all the flakes are coming from various confined patches and aren't clumpy or oily like danruff. They seem dry.
They look exactly like the flaky patches he gets on his face, especially in the areas he shaves. An exfoliant and moisturizer prescribed by me has taken care of those. What kind of skin problem could this be? Anybody know how to fix it?
