my son is a 7 years old african american. he is having the worst problem ever with his scalp. i have tried every kind od dandruff shampoo there is and still no relief. i wash his hair 2xs a week now because the flaking and the scabs are so embarrassing. after i wash his hair its looks clean and free of scales and flakes but his scalp is red. usually after 2 days of washing this whole process reoccurs with the itchy, scaly flakyness. what should i do?
If I had a 7 year old son, I would want an expert to examine and diagnose him. You need to take him to a pediatric doctor, one with an interest or experience in dermatologic conditions. There are many causes of flaky scalps and you need to consult with a good doctor.
