    Question Itchy dry scaly scalp.

    I have for a long time itchy dry flaky scaly scalp.At first I thought it was dandruff but dandruff shampoos did nothing to help with all the flakes. I went to my GP got an Rx for Denorex used this regularly but sometimes I like to use regular nice shampoo. Still my scalp problems remain. I googled found home remedy apple cider vinegar found some relief but only temporary. Tried aloe vera gel in pure form again some relief but only temporary. The flaky/scaly bits when I remove them I have hair loss as well each piece removes with hairs attached. I tried combing out the scaly bits but they are very attached to scalp. I sometimes scratch them loose which is unpleasant. I tried a small soft toothbrush to remove some. I used to have thick bushy hair but now I lost like 2/3 of my hair. Sometimes I think maybe if I have a shorter airier haircut my scalp might improve. But with all these scaly/flaky bits I am a bit embarrased of going to a hair salon for any haircut as my scalp is not nice to look at.
    Anyone who has this and what did you try for it ?Did anything really help?

    Re: Itchy dry scaly scalp.

    Hi I read your answer and no it is not dandruff my GP/dr says. What I have is a form of psoriasis on the scalp as I wrote on first post I used to think it was dandruff but no not that. My hair is clean as I wash my hair 3x times each week. I do not use all those hair products that cause buildup no hairspray etc.
