Scabs on scalp

I have a TON of scabs on my scalp and I pick at them. But they don't go away even if I don't pick at them. They don't scar and they don't make my hair fall out. I've gone to the doctor and he told me to buy this shampoo and I did and I used it but it did nothing. I'm wondering if anyone has had this problem and knows what to do about it.

Re: Scabs on scalp

Re: Scabs on scalp

Well, my scabs are all over and I do have dandruff. But the scabs are big and just like a scab on your elbow. Sometimes they bleed and it hurts when I brush my hair.

My dog has a skin problem and she chews and chews and chews and she loses hair. My doctor first prescribed me the same shampoo as the vet prescribed my dog.
