My 13 yr old has really bad dry scalp. It scabs so bad and bleeds. The only thing that helps is coconut oil with tea tree and peppermint oil. I have to apply this daily and leave it on (usually 40 min) for it to help. If we use this daily his scalp gets better in about two weeks, but as soon as we skip a day or two it comes back. Sometimes we just don't have time ugh.
We have anti-itch stuff to keep him from scratching and I've also tried witch hazel.
I don't know what else to do, but it does itch and hurt him. Also he uses Dr. Bonners tea tree soap to wash with.
Any other ideas/thoughts?
