Hello Risma, Thank you for the question.
Have you consulted with further doctors? Itching on the scalp can be accompanied by other symptoms such as redness of the scalp, feeling sore, and experiencing peeling skin (dandruff). Itching on the scalp can be caused by a number of problems on the scalp which can include:
eczema seborrheic dermatitis psoriasis fungal infections of head lice These scalp problems can be followed by secondary infections by bacteria so you can also experience pus discharge. This condition can not be handled alone at home. Therefore, you should immediately consult with a dermatologist further. The doctor will do an interview to understand your complaint and examine your scalp. If necessary, the doctor will perform other examinations such as scalp scrapings or biopsy to find the cause. After ascertaining the cause, the doctor will provide appropriate treatment. For now, you can clean the festering parts with a clean, damp cloth. You can wash your hair with soft shampoo such as baby shampoo or hypoallergenic shampoo. Avoid using hair tonics, creams, or other hair care products and avoid scratching itchy skin. You can compress cold water on itchy skin to temporarily relieve itching.
I hope this helps.
