Causes And Ways To Deal With Crusty Scalp?
I want to ask, is that a good way to use shampoo or not?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, of course you need to know the cause of your crusted head. Some possible causes of crusted head include:
Fungal infections (tinea capitis) seborrheic dermatitis Contact dermatitis (which occurs due to irritation or allergic to certain hair care products you have used before) Bacterial infections of the scalp psoriasis head lice Use of sulfur-containing shampoos like the one you mentioned, can be useful to reduce symptoms if the crust on your scalp is caused by seborrheic dermatitis, but it is less useful if it is caused by other causes. Therefore, it is better to be ascertained beforehand the cause of the crust on the scalp. You can get yourself checked by a dermatologist directly for further evaluation and management.
For now, it's best to keep your scalp clean by washing your hair regularly. Avoid using certain ingredients on the head for a while (hair tonic, hair gel, hair dye, etc.) until the crust is healed.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
