Hello, my scalp looks like dandruff but it’s sticky if I take it and it smells runny, why is that?

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

First of all, I want to confirm first, do you notice any rashes on your head or are there other symptoms such as itching or burning on your scalp?

If you don't see a particular rash on your head, chances are you have just plain dandruff. Dandruff does appear more often on the scalp that tends to be oily (so it can feel wet and sticky). To overcome this, you simply wash your hair more often (every day). If ordinary shampoo cannot overcome your dandruff, you can also try using shampoo that is made to treat dandruff, such as shampoo containing pyrithione zinc, salicylic acid, selenium sulfide, or ketoconazole (must be prescribed by a doctor).

If you see a rash on your scalp, your scalp feels thick, sore, and very itchy, then your condition may be caused by other things such as:

 Seborrheic dermatitis Contact dermatitis of fungal infections of the head (tinea capitis) of psoriasis In this case, it is advisable to check with a dermatologist for further evaluation and management.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
