    odor from the scalp/hair...pleeeeeeease help me...


    I have had dandruff for some years now. I used to use medicated shampoo like Selsun over the years. However for 3 months now, dandruff has reduced a bit, but in its place I have this strange foul odor from my hair. The scalp is kind of oily and smells real bad. I am forced to shampoo my hair everyday due to this. But the darned smell takes over in about 8 hrs time.

    I consulted a doctor and she sais it was due to fungal infection of the scalp. She prescribed ketoconazole shampoo saying that the odor wud be controlled as the fungal infection wud be controlled.

    I have been using this shampoo for almost a month now and I dont see any change so far.

    Someone please suggest what I shoud do ? What kind of a specialist do I consult? Please help out.

    i am facing lots of embarassement due to this.

    The symptoms are : kind of Greasy oily scalp with foul odor...

    Thanks a million...

    BTw is this the right forum to post this?

    I'm sorry to hear that about your hair. I think maybe u should get a second opinion about that. Or call that dr. again and tell her that it's not working, maybe she can give u something else.
    Good Luck!!
