I recently shaved my head and there is redness(it itches) on some area of the scalp. I have attached some pictures to see if this is some general dandruff due to cold weather or is this any kind of fungal infection?


I do not see too much flakes unless I scratch my head with nails or a comb.

I agree with Jo: see a dermatologist. There is really no other way to confirm your suspicions.


Good luck!

only see one red spot pic 4




it contains 1% Micronized Hydrocortisone


works wonders


if in one week you do not see an improvement STOP USE and see a derm


but this is what deems use as a first step for itchy, red skin without skin breakage


it's pricey though but OTC

I don't think so.


Sebhorrheic dermatitis accompanies lots of flaking.


Still if you have any doubts, do consult your dermatologist.
