Itchy scalp?

I have always had problems with really a really itchy, flaky scalp. I've tried all sorts of different medicated shampoos and never had any luck. What worked for you?

  • sounds like either psoriasis or eczema; I have a prescription medicine it is called Nizerol(use it once or twice a week) I believe you can buy it over the counter now but not sure if it the same strength as the prescription would be I was also told to use a Tea Tree Shampoo

    here are a couple sites about Nizerol and Tea Tree Products
